CFO Sink on Unemployment Compensation Tax Increases on Florida Businesses
CONTACT: Kyra Jennings or Kevin Cate (850) 413-2842
TALLAHASSEE – Florida CFO Alex Sink today released the following statement regarding unemployment compensation tax increases for Florida's businesses:
“It’s imperative that the Legislature and Governor delay implementation of the business tax increase they supported last year. This job-killing tax increase would strangle our businesses, particularly our small businesses, and stifle our chances for economic recovery. Over a million Floridians are unemployed, and raising taxes on small businesses is just flat wrong – especially at a time when job-creation must be our top priority. I pledge to work with Florida’s business community and I urge the Legislature to find commonsense solutions to put more Floridians back to work."
