Cutting Taxes on Florida Families…

By: Florida Chamber of Commerce

Floridians Pay the Ninth Highest CST in the Country

Did you know that nearly every Floridian pays a communications services tax (CST)? Those are taxes charged on landline and mobile phones, cable television and satellite services, by both your local government and the state.

Worse yet, Floridians are paying the ninth highest CST in the country.

The Florida Chamber is working to reduce the CST by lowering the local CST rate in favor of a more streamlined rate system. Doing so will:

• Lower costs on families and job creators, and
• Make Florida more competitive by increasing predictability for businesses.
