NFIB/Florida’s Leadership Council Chairman Jerry Pierce testified before the
committee on behalf of small business owners.
“This tax cut plan is exactly what small business owners need to continue
growing the economy and creating jobs. I know firsthand that when you cut taxes
on business owners, they invest in their businesses and create jobs,” Pierce
said. “I spoke with many businesses owners today at Governor Scott’s 1st
for Jobs tax cut rally, and their response to the business rent tax cut in
particular was overwhelming. They plan to hire employees, upgrade equipment and
expand when the business rent tax cut is passed – all things that will help Floridians.”
While the small business tax cut priorities are making their way through the
House, NFIB will be working with the Florida Senate to bring make these tax
cuts a reality.
