Sales Tax Exemption Update
Earlier this week FABA’s priority aircraft sales tax repeal legislation was taken up and approved by the Florida Senate Commerce Committee. Senator Aaron Bean enthusiastically presented Senate Bill 766 before the Committee and made the case for how Florida continues to lose jobs to other states that have lowered or eliminated their aircraft sales taxes. Senator Bean’s bill proposes a full repeal of Florida’s six percent tax on aircraft sales and leases. FABA Board Member Steve Popelik and South Florida Business Aviation Association President Jeff Ramsden made the trek to Tallahassee for the committee hearing and testified in support of SB 766.

The next stop for the Senate bill is the Senate Finance & Tax Committee Chaired by Sen. Kelli Stargel of Lakeland. The Finance and Tax Committee is charged with the determining the fiscal impact of the bill to Florida’s general revenue receipts. The House companion bill, HB 6045 by Representative Mike Miller of Orlando was workshopped last week by the House Ways & Means Committee and is being considered for inclusion in one of House tax packages.
