As non-residents purchasing
a boat in Florida
we qualify for the 90 day + 90 day extension sales/use tax exemption allowing us to keep the boat in Florida
for a total of 180 days. The documentation
states that a Broker must purchase
the exemption decals and affix them to the boat. We are planning a private party sale
- no broker involved.
Does anyone know if it is possible to claim the non-resident exemption in a private party transaction? Or a broker that could facilitate the transaction? (willing to pay a fee of course).
It would be great if someone has actual recent first hand experience going through this.
Thanks in advance!!
