Business Tax 
The Sarasota County Board of County Commissioners voted to repeal the County Business Tax July 9, 2024. Effective immediately, the County Business Tax will no longer be collected. Please note that since the Business Tax on Attorneys falls under a special act and funds the Law Library, that tax will continue.

Property Tax 
The property tax roll is open for collection November 1st each year and includes both real estate and tangible personal property tax.

Tourist Development Tax 
Tourist development tax is due on all properties rented for 6 months or less and is based on the rental receipts of the property; it is due on a monthly basis.
