For Existing Florida Businesses
If you already have access to the Florida Department of Revenue website, and have a withholding tax ID number, please STOP, and simply provide us with the data requested in the "Give us your Info" section of the Florida Taxes document. If you have access to the Florida Department of Revenue website, but do not have a Reemployment tax ID, please log in and apply for access to a Reemployment ID. If you have any questions, please call the Florida Department of Revenue website at 1-800-352-3671
The Florida Department of Revenue will issue you a Reemployment account number and tax rate. The number will be 7 digits, and you can find it on your Florida Quarterly Tax Return (form RT-6).
Unemployment tax rate: You can find your current tax rate on your most recent Reemployment Tax Rate Notice (Form RT-20). It ranges from 0.1%–6.4% with a wage base of $7,000. You can also call the Florida Department of Revenue Account Management department at (850) 717-6628 to retrieve your account number and rate.
Please ensure you provide OnPay with your accurate 7 digit Reemployment account number and not the Florida Business Partner ID. This is a separate account used for sales tax, which is not paid via payroll.
For New Florida Businesses
Please follow the steps below to register your business with the Florida Department of Revenue. Unless these steps are followed in their entirety, OnPay will be unable to file and pay your Florida Department of Revenue taxes.
