Vote NO on Special Interest Handouts
This past legislative session, Florida lawmakers ended millions in handouts for corporations. They also cut taxes by over $600 million and empowered Floridians to keep more of their hard-earned money. This is a great direction for our state.
Unfortunately, some legislators still aren’t onboard. Palm Beach County is considering whether to give $800,000 to an aerospace engineering company to help them move. The company is already located in Palm Beach County – they just want to move into new digs across town!
We know corporate giveaways don’t lead to more economic growth. Special tax incentives in the film industry, for instance, only return a fraction of the cost per dollar. One study showed incentives packages can have negative effects on job creation among companies that receive them.
Tax dollars should either be spent wisely or returned to taxpayers.
Tell your commissioner to vote NO on special interest handouts!
