Florida Chamber Pushes Tax Cuts for Special Session
While Medicaid expansion will be front and center in the special legislative session next month, the Florida Chamber of Commerce offered a reminder on Thursday that legislators should also cut taxes.
Special session has a lot on the table, including the creation of a state budget and the chance for meaningful health-care reform, said David Hart, the Florida Chambers executive vice president. The Florida Chamber is optimistic that the Florida Legislature can work through these items and still pass targeted tax reforms that will put money back in the pockets of Floridians and make Florida even more competitive.
The Florida Chamber backs Gov. Rick Scotts proposals to cut the Communications Service Tax (CST) on cellphones and cable TV services and lowering the commercial lease sales tax. It also backs tax holidays and targeted defense contract and R&D tax cuts.
