Martin sales tax drops to 6% today

The local 1/2 cent surtax was approved by voters in 2006 . However, medicines, medical services and most food items are exempt.

Florida law mandates a minimum sales tax rate of 6%, collected by the state government to provide services to all Floridians.  However, the law also provides for a local option sales tax that lets each county set its own local tax that is collected on top of the general state rate.

What does this mean?  Practically speaking, it means that you might pay a different sales tax rate in each Florida county.
