Florida (also my state) has some special taxation that includes video and music digital products and total taxes for each county may be different.

From the Florida Department of Revenue:

"What is taxable? Communications services include telecommunications, video, direct-to-home satellite, and related services. This definition includes voice, data, audio, video, or any other information or signals transmitted by any medium."

"Communications services tax is comprised of two parts: the Florida communications services tax and the local communications services tax."

"Dealers must itemize and separately state taxes on the customer's bill. The taxes must be identified as Florida communications services and local communications services tax, respectively. Dealers must add the communications services tax to the price of the communications services sold, and may not absorb or relieve the customer of all or any part of the communications services tax."

There are some exemptions (such as internet access paid to your ISP). The Florida Department of Revenue has a lot of information on this topic, including explanatory PDFs and Excel spreadsheets with taxation by county on their website ( search "florida department revenue communications services tax" as a start ).

I doubt this is applicable here. First, the products wouldn't really fit in the what is taxable list. Second, the number don't add up to the correct amount.
