Florida TaxWatch celebrated Taxpayer Independence Day on Monday, April 20, 2015. Taxpayer Independence Day is the first day in the calendar year that Florida taxpayers, on average, begin earning income that does not go toward federal, state and local taxes. Yesterday, the Florida Senate, led by Senator Jeff Brandes, recognized that Florida remains a low-tax state by adopting Senate Resolution 1668.
The latest Florida TaxWatch report, How Florida Compares - Taxes, shows that Floridians' per capita state tax burden has fallen to 48th in the nation, while Florida's per capita state revenue has dropped to 49th in the nation. Florida is truly a taxpayer-friendly state, and the best place in the nation to start or grow a business, raise a family, and retire.
