03/17/05 – How – and Why – Should Flor⁠i⁠da’s Sales Tax Exemp⁠t⁠⁠i⁠ons be Rev⁠i⁠ewed?

By: The James Madison Institute / 2005

A group called FAIR (Floridians Against Inequitable Rates) headed by former Florida Senate President John McKay is attempting to put three amendments to Florida’s Constitution on the 2006 ballot. The amendments would mandate a “sunset review” of Florida’s sales tax exemptions. Each would be subject to review at least every 10 years. Exemptions that the Legislature did not explicitly vote to retain would be eliminated.
