Statement by Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick Regarding Tax Relief for Florida’s Farmers and Ranchers

July 2, 2015

“Today, the Florida Legislature passed a broad tax relief package that included several provisions that will put $13 million dollars back into the hands of Florida’s farms and ranches.  By eliminating sales taxes on parts and repairs for farm equipment, irrigation equipment and farm trailers, the Legislature took a step to making Florida agriculture an even stronger part of the state’s economy.  We appreciate the many members of both the House and Senate who made this issue a priority.”
