Creating a Competitive and Equitable Tax System - Will Your Voice Be Heard?
A competitive and equitable tax system creates jobs and strengthens the economy. With 5.4 million more people expected to call Florida home by 2030, Florida will need to create 2 million jobs to maintain a 5 percent unemployment rate. One key to creating jobs for this growing population will be a competitive and equitable tax system. Yet, Florida is the only state in the nation that taxes businesses on rent - setting up discouraging and discriminatory tax policies.

The 2018 Legislative Session is just weeks away, and the Florida Chamber wants your input on targeted tax reform. Please take a moment to share your thoughts by completing a short survey  today. Survey closes at 5 p.m., on Jan. 16.
