Doc Stamps

 

Frazer tracks all Doc Stamps charged to customers. The report is available from Reports >> 2 - Sales Reports >> 6 - Doc Stamps Report. It will print a list of Doc Stamps charged to customers over a specific date range of sales.

 

The system defaults the Doc Stamp rate to 35 cents per $100. This does not need to be changed.

A dealer MUST collect Doc Stamps when they contract the customer. If they do not want to charge them to the customer because the customer is bringing their own money from a bank or CU then they must do a cash sale and attach the proper lienholder if necessary. OR They can check the checkbox at the bottom of the lienholder/advanced tab.

Florida Hope Scholarship

 

Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, a student enrolled in a Florida public school in kindergarten through grade 12 who has been subjected to an incident of battery; harassment; hazing; bullying; kidnapping; physical attack; robbery; sexual offenses, harassment, assault, or battery; threat or intimidation; or fighting at school the opportunity to transfer to another public school with capacity or enroll in an approved private school under the Hope Scholarship.

 

The law provides for eligible sales tax contributions from the purchase of a motor vehicle to eligible nonprofit scholarship funding organizations (SFOs). Contingent upon available funds, the SFOs then award the scholarships to eligible students on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

Beginning on or after October 1, 2018, anyone who purchases or registers a motor vehicle qualifying for the Hope Scholarship Program in Florida may designate $105 of the state sales tax due at the time of purchase or registration to an eligible nonprofit scholarship-funding organization participating in the Program. If the state sales tax due is less than $105, the designated amount would be the state sales tax due.

 

To opt the customer in or out for tracking and printing purposes in Frazer, you can click the Hope Scholarship button underneath the "Review Taxes" button on the Pricing tab of Sales Processing and make a selection.
