Business Rent Tax Stifles Florida’s Economic Future

April 6, 2017 - 1:15pm

The business rent tax is the only state-sanctioned sales tax on commercial leases in the entire country and Florida is the not-so-proud holder of that title. Not even tax-happy havens like California and New York impose this state tax on its businesses. Due to this burdensome tax, Florida businesses shell out more than $1.7 billion dollars every year to the state. As a result, our state economy dramatically suffers in the form of suppressed job growth and economic activity.

Prosperity for Our Families and Future

March 15, 2017 - 5:00pm

Thanks to the efforts of Governor Rick Scott and the state’s committed business leaders,‭ ‬Florida has one of the strongest economies in the country.‭ ‬With our unemployment rate under‭ ‬5‭ ‬percent,‭   ‬Florida continues to exceed the nation’s annual job growth rate and tourism,‭ ‬one of the state’s economic drivers remains strong,‭ ‬with just under‭ ‬113‭ ‬million visitors in‭ ‬2016,‭ ‬an increase from just‭ ‬86‭ ‬million‭ ‬visitors just three years ago.
