SB 1192 – Relating to Tax on Aviation Fuel
On Tuesday, January 14, SB 1192 by Senator Joe Gruters (R-Sarasota) was heard in the Senate Commerce & Tourism Committee and was reported favorable with 4 yeas and 1 nay. AIF’s Senior Vice President of State and Federal Affairs, Brewster Bevis, stood in support of this legislation.
Florida statute imposes an excise tax of 4.27 cents per gallon on aviation fuel, aviation gasoline, and kerosene sold in or brought into the state. This repeals the excise tax imposed on aviation fuel, aviation gasoline, and kerosene sold or brought into the state.
SB 1192 will now move to the Senate Finance & Tax Committee.
AIF supports legislative actions that reduce taxes on businesses which allows further growth and employment opportunities.
