SkyShop Logistics Tax Free Zone

An issue has been identified when running DynamicZip Build 71 and older builds regarding the tax schedules for Miami (Miami-Dade County), FL. All tax schedules for Miami (Miami-Dade County), FL are being imported with a zero tax rate when there should be only one tax schedule with a zero rate. The zero rate tax schedule is for Miami (Miami-Dade County), FL 33106, and is a result of the SkyShop Logistics of Florida Inc.'s arrangement with the Florida Department of Revenue.

NOTE: If you are currently running DynamicZip Build 71 or older, then you can resolve this issue by upgrading to one of the current versions of DynamicZip.

Workaround:

The issue occures when both Geocode 1200045000 and 12000×0025 have the same name, MIAMI. By renaming the 12000×0025 Geocode to SKYSHOP LOGISTICS INC, you can correct the issue permanently. Here are instructions for performing this workaround.

  1. Press the Find button.
  2. Search by Name for “MIAMI”.
  3. Identify the 12000×0025 Geocode and rename it to SKYSHOP LOGISTICS INC (Please see the attached screen print at the bottom of this page).
  4. Tab or click on another geocode record to ensure that your changes are made.

Here is an alternate workaround for manually adding the proper tax details and removing the incorrect detail to and from the Miami tax schedules.

NOTE: This workaround must be performed after every import of the rate & boundary database as long as you remain on Build 71.
