Thank Representative Clemons for Looking Out for Small Businesses

Please join the Florida Chamber in thanking Representative Chuck Clemons for standing up for Florida businesses, protecting job creators and consumers, and taking steps to build the perfect climate for business in Florida.                    

Representative Clemons has filed a bill to level the playing field between main street local businesses and their online counterparts. Passage of HB 159 will help stop the current six percent disadvantage small businesses face compared to online businesses.

Sales tax on goods and services is already required by both brick and mortar stores as well as online stores. Passage of HB 159 is not a tax increase. In fact, 43 of 45 states have streamlined the sales tax remittance process making it easier for online retailers to remit sales taxes. Thank you Representative Clemons for standing up for main street businesses.
