Florida Manufacturing Equipment Sales Tax Relief Goes Into Effect

Starting April 30, NMMA manufacturers in Florida no longer must pay sales tax on the purchase of manufacturing equipment, although there are some eligibility requirements. NMMA worked closely with Governor Rick Scott last year to get NMMA members to write letters to legislators supporting the legislation that led to the tax break. Gov. Scott made the tax change a top priority after recognizing that Florida was the only state on the Gulf Coast or Atlantic Seaboard that charged sales tax on major manufacturing equipment purchases.
