Business Advocates Roll Out Support for Rick Scott's Call to Cut Taxes on Manufacturing Equipment

January 8, 2013 - 6:00pm

Business groups statewide were quick to come to the support of Gov. Rick Scott as he proposed offering new incentives to manufacturers to build additional business in Florida.

Scott will ask legislators this spring to eliminate taxes on the purchase of equipment by manufacturing companies.

Right now, if you have a manufacturing company in Florida and want to buy more equipment, then you have to pay a sales tax. We need to eliminate that so Florida companies are not at a competitive disadvantage, Scott said while on WOVK 690 AM in Jacksonville on Wednesday morning.
