Statement from Tim Nungesser, NFIB/Florida Legislative Director, on the passage of the Florida House’s tax package in the House Ways and Means Committee:
“NFIB applauds the Florida House for including a cut in the business rent tax as part of their tax package today.
“This burdensome unique-to-Florida tax comes directly out of Florida business owners’ bottom lines. Lowering this tax shows that the House recognizes the important contributions small business owners make to our economy. When small business owners get to keep more of their hard-earned money, they reinvest that money into their businesses and their communities.
“Alleviating the tax burden from the business rent tax will go a long way toward helping small business owners continue to create jobs and grow our economy, and we thank Chairman Renner for his leadership on behalf of small business owners.”
