Sales Tax

When remitting Sales Tax to Department of Revenue for purchases after January 1st, please make sure to calculate using a rate of 6.5%. Effective January 1, 2016 the state sales and use tax rate for Hernando County is 6.5%, as the .5% School Captial Outlay Surtax has been extended by Special Election. Please keep this in mind when computing future Sales Tax Calculations.
