NFIB Applauds Small Business Saturday Sales Tax Holiday Legislation
Tallahassee, FL, January 16, 2015 – Statement from Bill Herrle, Executive Director of the National Federation of Independent Business/Florida, regarding the Small Business Saturday sales tax holiday legislation filed by Sen. Rene Garcia and Rep. Jay Fant.
“Local businesses have been enthusiastic about Small Business Saturday from its inception, but they’re thrilled that the Florida Legislature wants to give Floridians an even bigger incentive to visit their smaller, independently owned stores on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Florida’s commitment to small business owners has been overwhelming, but a Small Business Saturday sales tax holiday is an exciting way to give these small local shops a boost and give shoppers even more reasons to visit their neighbors on Main Street as part of their holiday shopping.”
Held each year on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday is a day to support the local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods around the country.
