The Florida House unanimously passed legislation Thursday to roll back vehicle registration fees, resulting in substantial tax relief for Floridians. The bill will reduce fees to what was paid prior to 2009, saving residents $395 million a year.
SB 156 now heads to Gov. Rick Scott’s desk for his signature.
“With substantive tax relief a major priority this session, the House is focused on ways to put money directly back into the pockets of hard-working Floridians,” House Speaker Will Weatherford said in a statement. “Today we have taken a significant step toward our goal of providing $500 million in tax relief—the largest tax and fee cut of its kind in over a decade.”
As outlined in the bill, Floridians will see their registration costs reduced by $25.05 for heavy weight vehicles, $21.55 for middle weight vehicles, and $18.55 for light weight vehicles.
Thursday’s action was welcomed in the grassroots community.
“On behalf of AFP-FL’s 150,000 grassroots activists, I applaud the Governor and legislature for making tax cuts a priority this year. Rolling back the vehicle registration fee increases passed in 2009 will save Florida drivers nearly $400 million a year, money that is best spent by Floridians to grow the private economy rather than the government,” said Abbie MacIver, Americans for Prosperity’s Florida Director of Policy.
