COVID-19 Update

During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency, Elevate Lake and Visit Lake are committed to providing our businesses and community partners with up-to-date and reliable information.  As noted in last week's email, we are still encouraging businesses to fill out the Business Damage Assessment Survey if they haven't done so, as our state and local agencies are still compiling this information to determine the needed resources for our community. Of course, the number one priority at the moment is to stay healthy and to limit our exposure to COVID-19 per CDC guidelines. 

The Florida Department of Revenue issued two Emergency Orders related to Sales and Use Tax and Property Taxes yesterday, March 26th, that will provide flexibility on tax due dates. The press releases can be viewed here:
