Before filing Form RT-6, you are required to register and receive a reemployment tax account number. You may do this online on the DOR website.

Include the following details in the Florida Department of Revenue employer's quarterly report:

  1. State the total number of full-time and part-time employees who worked or received salaries during the payroll period;
