Though not well known outside this state, Florida is the only state to separately charge sales tax on commercial real estate rent. It becomes clear that most storage rental businesses will not qualify as a bailment (assuming they even wanted to). So, the issue of bailment essentially comes down to a choice by the business owner of what degree of custody and control do they want to accept.
Additionally, if you are renting movable storage units, you need to be aware of the applicable surtax. As indicated above, a particular storage business that is notified of a sales and use tax audit might not have any questions about how it has treated the actual storage charges.

If you have an outboard boat, don't forget to do the engines, including the undersides of the mount brackets. Types of Brushes As a general boat cleaning brush, I'd first recommend one of those imitation lamb's wool jobs as these are least abrasive on bright finishes. Windows & Tracks If you have sliding windows in your boat, the tracks and aluminum window frames will last a lot longer if you rinse and clean them out occasionally. Deck Drains  While you're at it, use that pressure hose to clean out all those little drain holes in the deck hatch gutters.
I recommend going to your local lake boat ramp ( Starke Lake ramp is 2 minutes away )and dropping your boat trailer into a lake and letting it sit for at least 5 minutes to let the salt crystals dissolve.  It is ok to do this with your boat on the trailer, in fact you can flush your engine from the saltwater at the same time.

This means businesses that have commercial property leases will be subject to Florida sales tax. This tax can apply to offices, warehouses, and other parcels of real property for other uses. Per the rule, a safe deposit box is a bailment (because the bank has one key and the customer another and both are necessary for access to the box) but an airport locker is not a bailment (because the renter has the key and sole access to the stored property). For those instances where a customer has an access code and the lone key to the storage space used, there clearly doesn't appear to be the required transfer of possession or level of custody required for a bailment. This uncertainty of the proper tax treatment can also become an issue if the storage space is not real property but is instead a movable container which holds customer property and involves customer notice before the customer can get access to the property. This would mean that the business must remit tax to the landlord and then take a credit for tax paid when reporting tax collected from its customers. But, the auditor is going to look for every possible issue that might involve unreported tax. Having dealt with new and experienced auditors from all over the state, we can tell you that the issue of bailments is not even taught to auditors.


Our Ocoee Fl, outside RV & Boat storage location has 24 hour electronic access with audit trail for the safety of your boat and RV.
The hose hook up & usage is free of charge and great for letting your boat run or cleaning after saltwater.
That means that salt is capable of condensing water out of the atmosphere when humidity is high. First because the chlorine is corrosive and will permanently stain and discolor virtually anything that is anodized aluminum, like rub rails, windshields and trim. For tougher areas like non-skid, select a natural, not plastic, medium stiffness bristle brush. If those drains clog up with debris, as they often do, the gutters will overflow and put water into places it shouldn't be. If possible you can then spray the brakes and trailer off with a hose.  Taking care of your boat trailer is important for safety and to better enjoy your boating experience. Often the contractual language involved will not try to hide the fact that a bailment is not intended as the business might not want to risk the potential liability associated with custody and control of a customer's property. But, if the storage unit is moved to another county for any number of reasons, then the corresponding surtax will need to be properly reported for allocation purposes to the applicable county. This applies to the movable storage units noted above as they typically will charge a separately for storing the unit on their property rather than at the customer's location.
And, in many instances, the auditor is authorized to get the tax from either the business or the customer if it wasn't paid. So you have to either be informed enough to know about bailments yourself or hire someone to represent you who is. The property is surrounded with a fence with barbwire and backed up to the 429 toll road.  The Ocoee Fl storage center has security cameras 24 hours a day.
Cleaning your boat after saltwater is very important for keeping your boat in tip top shape.
As for seat cushions, I recommend that you stand them on their sides or edges, zipper side down, and lightly rinse those down. I actually take the hose with nozzle inside and squirt the accumulated debris and salts out until the track is clean. In such a case, one would be hard pressed to argue that the arrangement was a non-taxable bailment. Again, as noted above, the business can address the issue in the contract with the customer to specifically disclaim a bailment. If you live anywhere near the water in Florida, then you have probably seen the boat storage facilities that place boat in storage off the ground, often stack up several boats high. Use tax can be due from the business owner who is moving the units unless the unit was used in the original delivery county for more than six months.
This is just one of the many strange quirks in Florida sales and use tax law and we can assist you with any questions you might have.
Salt actually has several negative effects on anything it comes in contact with in Florida. This will help prevent water streaking at those points where water runs down from the superstructure, finally rinsing the hull sides last.


And by the way, this is also the best way to store them so that they don't hold water and start to rot. If that doesn't do it, you can use a non-chlorinated cleanser, or better yet a specially formulated boat cleaner.
Use the lamb's wool on any surface that you'd wax; use the bristle brush only on the non-skid surfaces. Usually twice per year will do the trick during a short season, 4 times annually for a 12 month season. Also check for these drains around window frames and anchor or rope locker compartments, too. As the Florida Department of Revenue (FDOR) has been auditing a number storage facilities recently, this issue is becoming more important.
For all intentions with the FDOR, the State seems perfectly willing to accept that the transaction is subject to sales tax to receive their associated revenue in those cases where there isn't a bailment. But, this is not the case if the billing includes the otherwise nontaxable services into a lump sum. You pull the boat up to the storage facility and a special type of forklift picks up the boat and transports it into a dry dock storage bin.
But, as noted above, the lack of use tax being due does not change the fact that each rental payment is its own sales transaction so that surtax will be due based on where the unit is located at the time of payment. Add in the fact that the State has been more likely in recent audits to included exhibits for as little as $50 and less likely to waive penalties, this means it is more important than ever to know your sales tax rights to protest your business and not be overcharged by an overzealous or inexperienced auditor who comes knocking.
If you never ask about what rights you have, you'll never know when an auditor is trying tax you unjurstly.
I pay special attention to get all salt off of things like winches, radar scanners and other such expensive components. ALWAYS be sure to fully rinse away all residue, including the places where it runs over the side or out the scuppers.
Our free initial consultation can help you address those issues so you can at least feel comfortable in knowing the rights you do have when the audit starts. What you're less likely aware of is that it is also corrosive to boat finishes of all kinds, including gel coat. Be sure to spray around all that piping that holds the soft top up, if that's what you have. When the customer wants access to the boat, the storage company uses the forklift to haul the boat back to the water. That's why the finish on your hull sides, which don't get much sun, also deteriorates as though it were getting the full dose of ultra violet. Even if the customer were allowed temporary access to the boat, it would only with the consent and oversight of the storage company. Like the safety deposit box example above, this is a clear case of bailment because the boat storage facility assumes complete possession and control of the boat at all times.
