We sold the house we were living in and were married at the time of the sale. My name was never on any paperwork for the house. We are now going through a divorce and he is trying to say that I still have to pay half the taxes on the house because we were married at the time of the sale.
In your case, it would be a "use tax" as opposed to "sales tax"; both of which are taxable according to the regulatory language from which you quote. That language seems to be consistent with Florida Statute 212.05, ("storage, use tax"), the text of which is found...Read more »
