Gas Tax

February 25th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Gas prices could be going up in some counties. The Taxation and Budget Reform Commission today moved forward with a plan to equalize local gas taxes around the state. Right now, some counties assess a five cent tax on top of the 33 cent state tax, while others levy as much as 11 cents. A proposal by Commission member Randy Miller would set the statewide county tax at 11 cents a gallon.

“What this proposal would do is make them all uniform at eleven cents a gallon,” Miller said. “That way the state of Florida is not having to supplement certain counties that will not raise their own taxes on their own citizens to provide the transportation funding necessary for that county.”

Voters must ultimately approve any change. The idea still has two more votes before it would be placed on the November ballot.
