Governor backs sales tax holiday reinstatement


In a statement received by the St. Johns County local news desk at Historic City News, Governor Crist said “The Back to School Sales Tax Holiday is a great way to stimulate the economy and help Florida families save on clothing, books and school supplies.”

Because of constraints in the state budget, Crist added, “For one, two or more days, whatever the Legislature determines we can do at this time, I look forward to helping reinstate the Back to School Sales Tax Holiday.”

Crist says that the stimulus provided by the tax holiday will help ensure that our next generation of doctors, scientists and teachers will have the tools that they need to be successful in the classroom.

“Now is the time to be cutting taxes – to relieve the financial burden families and businesses are currently facing, and to improve the economic outlook of our state”, Crist said in his statement.
