How are Ownership Documents and titles transferred for Florida residents?

If you reside outside the state of Florida or are an international customer, you are exempt from Florida state sales tax.

Florida residents are subject to additional taxes on vehicles.

Florida vehicles are not tax-exempt IF you live in the state of Florida, and your invoice will reflect the state sales tax, and surtax based off the final bid amount. 

Vehicles purchased by Florida residents are subject to auction fees, AutoBidMaster’s transaction fee, a documentation fee of $350, state sales tax of 6%, and a county discretionary sales surtax (based on the buyer’s county of residence). Please see here for more detailed information. 

A Florida registered member/export/import company that buys vehicles for resale and will immediately export them outside of Florida (documentation required) is exempt from Florida sales tax.

When paperwork arrives from the auction, we process and sent it to the tag agency. Then an electronic title is created. Once new title is issued, you can go to the local Tax collector's office and obtain a printed copy.

What about shipping?

If the vehicle You purchase is located in the same state as your address in our membership records, you will be automatically enrolled in AutoBidMaster Home Delivery. With AutoBidMaster Home Delivery, AutoBidMaster or an AutoBidMaster affiliated entity will deliver the purchase to you, for an additional fee.  All purchases from in-state auctions require AutoBidMaster Home Delivery.
