F.S. 320.413
320.413 Discontinuance or transfer of business; change of address.
(1) Whenever a person ceases to engage in business as a motor carrier by reason of the discontinuance, sale, or transfer of the business of such person, he or she shall notify the department in writing at least 10 days prior to the time the discontinuance, sale, or transfer takes effect. Such notice shall give the date of discontinuance and, in the event of a sale or transfer of the business, the date thereof and the name and address of the purchaser or transferee. All taxes shall become due and payable concurrently with such discontinuance, sale, or transfer, and any such person shall, concurrently with such discontinuance, sale, or transfer, make a report, pay all such taxes, interest, and penalties, and surrender to the department the motor vehicle registration or registrations issued to such person.
(2) Unless notice has been given to the department as provided in subsection (1), such purchaser or transferee is liable to the state for the amount of all taxes, penalties, and interest under the laws of this state accrued against the person selling or transferring his or her business on the date of such sale or transfer, but only to the extent of the value of the property and business thereby acquired from such motor carrier.
(3) Nothing in this section shall be construed as releasing the motor carrier so transferring or discontinuing his or her business from liability for any taxes or for any interest or penalty due under the provisions of this chapter.
(4) Every motor carrier shall submit in writing to the department any change in address of his or her principal place of business within 10 days after such change becomes effective.
