Solar equipment is exempt from sales tax in Florida. The exemption covers all components used in the system, not just solar panels. The Florida Solar Energy Center lists the components that qualify in a document found here.

Sellers of solar energy systems are required to document sales to get the exemption. A simple application form must be signed by the seller. The form is provided by the Florida Department of Revenue and can be found here.

The sales tax exemption started in 1997 and became permanent in 2005.
