Support a Reduction in the Business Rent Tax

This Legislative Session, members of the Florida Legislature have a chance to hear several bills relating to a reduction in the business rent tax.

Florida charges a 6% sales tax on business rent, creating a financial burden for any business that leases space. What’s more, municipalities and local governments may levy additional local option taxes on top of the state sales tax rate. Consequently, businesses in many counties are paying up to a 7.5% or 8% sales tax rate on their business rent.

Lowering the business rent tax will provide Florida businesses with the capital to expand, hire more employees, improve benefits and raise salaries. These bills have a challenging road ahead and we need your help in urging legislators to support them.
