School Tax Break Tardy, Gas Tax Runs Out of Fuel, Hurricane Tax Break Blown Away

May 6th, 2008 by flanews

Three plans to offer Floridians a tax break this summer, failed. This is the first time in nearly a decade the state wont offer a back-to-school tax holiday. In the past Floridians enjoyed cheaper prices on items to harden their homes. This year a plan for a hurricane preparedness tax break was blown away. The state will also continue to tax gas this summer. A plan to cut the gas tax by ten cents this summer ran out of fuel. Representative Marti Coley sponsored the back-to-school tax break.

We will feel it and I think we will feel it immediately. There is definitely a crunch and we all know that and the need and the necessity to give all families a tax break, I think is extremely important. Its a big disappointment, said Coley.

Lawmaker cited a four billion dollar shortfall as the reason for not passing the relieve plans.
