If the landlord tries to tell you differently, I suggest you look for another place.... I hope this was some help to you...
My best Regards....
The question is if the landlord will report that tax to the State of Florida. You may need to call the State Dept of Revenue to make sure the landlord is collecting and paying the tax. Otherwise is an increase on the price.
Good luck and hope this helps.

There should be no tax on a property that is rented for longer. Even is special situations, like the rental is really a hotel, 7% sounds wrong to me. I would be wary.
Feel free to contact me if I can help you find somewhere else.
