CFO Sink Supports Delay of Unemployment Compensation Tax


CONTACT: Kevin Cate (850) 413-2842
TALLAHASSEE – Florida CFO Alex Sink today released the following statement commending the Florida Legislature for voting to delay massive unemployment compensation tax increases on the state’s businesses:

“In these tough economic times, the last thing our businesses could afford was this massive tax hike, and I commend the swift action taken today,” said CFO Sink. “By postponing the tax increase that the Legislature and Governor supported last year, they avoided what could have been a crippling blow to Florida’s businesses, especially many of our small businesses.”
