Governor Signs Packinghouse Tax Exemption

Thursday, April 14th, 2016 by tamara

Dear Friends of the Florida Citrus Industry,

Good news! Governor Scott on Wednesday signed the measure allowing a sales tax exemption for fresh fruit and vegetable packinghouses on equipment purchased, repairs to existing equipment and labor.

We have pursued this legislation for several sessions so I am happy to report we finally got it done! Thanks to Governor Scott, Speaker of the House Steve Crisafulli, Representative Matt Gaetz and all of our champions in the House and the Senate. The exemption should provide a nice financial shot in the arm to our fresh industry. It takes effect on July 1, 2016.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Mutual.
