The Florida Department of Revenue released a technical assistance advisement about admission fees.

An owner and operator of triathlon events requested guidance from the Department on the taxability of participation fees. Athletes paid the participation fees to enter the triathlons. The owner also charged spectator fees to the public to view the events.

Florida generally taxes sales of admissions. However, Florida exempts participation or entry fees for races and sporting events if spectators to the event are charged taxable admission. The owner of the triathlon events collected tax on the spectator fees. Since the spectator fees were taxed, the owner did not need to collect tax on the participation fees.
