Today, April 20th, marks the celebration of Florida’s Taxpayer Independence Day. Taxpayer Independence Day is the day when taxpayers have collectively earned enough money to pay their total federal, state and local tax bill for the year. Due to a lower-than-average tax structure, Florida’s Taxpayer Independence Day falls four days earlier than the national day, which falls on April 24th this year.
The Florida Department of Financial Services’ Division of Insurance Fraud on Thursday arrested three subjects on charges related to personal injury protection (PIP) fraud.
Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater today sponsored a resolution signed by the Florida Cabinet recognizing April 12 through April 19, 2015, as “Days of Remembrance” honoring the victims of the Holocaust. The observance also includes “Holocaust Remembrance Day,” known as Yom HaShoah, on April 16.
