F.S. 496.430
496.430 Disqualification from certain tax exemptions.
(1) In addition to the penalties provided for in s. 496.419(5), the department may issue an order to disqualify a charitable organization or sponsor from receiving any sales tax exemption certificate issued by the Department of Revenue if the department finds a violation of s. 496.419(4).
(2) A charitable organization or sponsor may appeal a disqualification order by requesting a hearing within 21 days after notification from the department that it has issued a disqualification order under this section. The hearing must be conducted in accordance with chapter 120.
(3) A disqualification order issued by the department pursuant to this section is effective for 1 year after such order becomes final. After the expiration of a final disqualification order, a charitable organization or sponsor may apply to the Department of Revenue for a sales tax exemption certificate.
(4) The department shall provide a disqualification order to the Department of Revenue within 30 days after such order becomes final. A final disqualification order is conclusive as to the charitable organization or sponsor’s entitlement to a sales tax exemption. The Department of Revenue shall revoke a sales tax exemption certificate granted to, or refuse to grant a sales tax exemption certificate to, a charitable organization or sponsor subject to a final disqualification order within 30 days after receiving such disqualification order. A charitable organization or sponsor may not appeal or challenge the revocation or denial of a sales tax exemption certificate by the Department of Revenue if such revocation or denial is based upon a final disqualification order issued pursuant to this section.
