Do I need to have a business registered in Florida to work with Florida Tax Deed Surplus?
No. You do not need to live in or have a business registered in Florida to work with Florida Surplus records. In fact, you do not need any special business licensing at all. Now, this pertains to the tax deed surplus being held by the individual counties. Some people incorrectly state that you have to be a lawyer and that your percentage is capped at 12%. They are speaking about the unclaimed property being held by the state of Florida Unclaimed Property Division. Those rules do not apply to tax deed surplus being held by the counties in Florida.
