Florida Senate Democrats Lay Plans for Higher Taxes for State Residents
Three minutes, Lawmakers in the Florida Senate moving forward on a plan to replenish the state's drained unemployment fund by raising taxes on ordinary Floridians. The plan would shift the burden from corporations and businesses to residents who shopped online. If the bill becomes law, a sales tax would be collected from online sales. Normally, companies would pay a per employee tax to fund the unemployment system. Some Democrats are calling it another corporate bailout of Republicans say it helps prevent a big tax hike on companies caused by the huge unemployment claims during the pandemic.
