Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, a true champion of conservative values and principles, has made a bold and historic move towards tax relief for families in the Sunshine State.
In a recent press conference, the governor announced the largest tax relief proposal in Florida’s history, a proposal that will have a profound and lasting impact on the lives of Florida families.
Governor DeSantis highlighted the strong economic state of Florida, which boasts one of the lowest per capita tax burdens and debt burdens in the country, as well as being a top destination for new business formation. With a massive $22 billion surplus out of a $109 billion budget, Governor DeSantis is poised to provide much-needed relief to Florida families.
The governor’s proposal includes permanent sales tax exemptions on baby and toddler necessities, including diapers, baby clothes, shoes, baby wipes, cribs, strollers, and even gas stoves. This move is a direct response to the Biden Administration’s attempt to control the energy consumption of American families.
Governor DeSantis made it clear that the state of Florida will not let this happen, as he believes that it should be up to individuals to make their own choices about their energy consumption.
In addition to these permanent exemptions, the governor’s proposal also includes a one-year tax holiday on household items under $25, pet food, and key items such as children’s books, toys, and youth athletic equipment.
The governor also announced that the popular Freedom Summer tax holiday will be extended to 15 weeks, allowing Floridians to save money on outdoor activities and equipment all summer long. This move is estimated to save Floridians $250 million this summer.
All in all, Governor DeSantis’ proposal amounts to roughly $2 billion in tax relief for Florida families. This move is a testament to the governor’s commitment to conservative principles and his belief that families, not the government, know best how to spend their hard-earned money.
In these difficult times, it is heartening to see a leader who is willing to stand up for the rights and freedoms of American families. Governor DeSantis’ proposal is a shining example of the kind of conservative leadership that we need in this country.
It is a clear message to all Americans that the state of Florida is open for business, and that our families will be protected and supported.
