tax break

Honorably discharged veterans could get a two-month break from sales taxes under a measure filed by Miami Democratic Representative Kionne  McGhee.

Advocates are hopeful they’ll see legislation implementing tax breaks on solar energy pass the legislature this session. But they’re not happy with different parts of the House and Senate bills.

Tallahassee City Commissioner Gil Ziffer says although a proposed increase in the homestead tax break would keep money in the pockets of homeowners, the move could hurt local governments.
