*Under Florida sales tax statute, admission charges to attend consumer trade shows or conventions/exhibitions are subject to sales tax plus any applicable discretionary sales surtax. Since the CERTIFIED Educators Conference is taking place in Florida, this rule would apply to all persons that are charged admission. Attendees are individuals and are not tax-exempt, even though a state-tax-supported educational institution may reimburse the individual for the admission charges. The tax-exempt nature of the educational institution does not extend to the individual, because the admission to the conference is not part of the institution’s customary nonprofit activities, which would be exempt, nor does it qualify under any specific exemption in Florida.
