Q&A on the data

* What if salary is zero or a small number? Some employers said they couldn't calculate annual salary for certain part-timers. In these cases, click an employee's name to see "Base rate," which can be hourly, bi-weekly or monthly pay.
Is this all they make? In most cases, yes. But some bonuses aren't included here. Neither are most private salary sources.
Why is information missing? Some employers redacted information they deemed exempt from Florida's public records law.
Where's the tax collector? Hillsborough, Pinellas and Sarasota counties include most elective offices under one list. Other counties break them out, so they appear separately under "Employer."
Why do some names appear twice? They may have more than one job.
