Help Reduce the Business Rent Tax
By: Florida Chamber of Commerce
Add your voice to the Florida Chamber’s efforts to reduce the Business Rent Tax, also known as the sales tax on commercial leases. Click the “Take Action Now” button below to email Florida Governor Rick Scott and ask him to include this important tax cut as one of his legislative priorities.
Florida is the only state with a Business Rent Tax. That means in Florida, businesses pay a six percent tax on the space they lease, including added costs to that lease, such as property taxes, maintenance and the cost of insurance.
And those costs are adding up. In fact, it costs Florida businesses $1.7 billion every single year.
However, if the business rent tax was reduced by just one percent, businesses across Florida would save $286.9 million annually.
