Exemption From Florida Taxes
The City of Fort Myers is exempt from all federal excise and Florida sales taxes. An exemption certificate will be sent upon request.

Suppliers must provide the city with their Federal Employer ID number or Social Security Number. This information is necessary to comply with the Internal Revenue Service 1099 reporting regulations. An IRS Form W-9 is included in the Vendor Application (PDF).

In compliance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations, the city issues IRS Form 1099 annually based on the IRS Form W-9 received from vendors. Updates to W-9 information may be sent by email or by fax to 239-344-5931.
