FL – keeping sales tax exemptions after all

Posted by salestax on April 3, 2009

So, last September, I reported on how the FL handed out sales tax exemptions like water and the cost of those exemptions.  At the same time, the FL legislature was looking at paring away some of the exemptions that primarily benefitted out of state tourists with money (i.e. Superbowl tickets and deep-sea fishing expeditions). 

Well, as you can read in this article here (also featured on our Sales/Use Tax news page under TOP PICKS), the fight to end these exemptions has been “put to rest.”  In other words, continue letting property taxes soar in FL, so someone with no investment in the state can save $60 on a $1,000 superbowl ticket next year.
