Fla. Gov. Wants To Cut Corporate Filing Fees

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott is proposing to cut annual corporate filing fees.

Scott next week will roll out his proposed budget recommendations to the Florida Legislature.

The Republican governor wants to save businesses $33 million by reducing fees paid when companies register with the state.

The Scott administration says the proposal would streamline filing files for more than 1.6 million businesses.

Scott, who is up for re-election this year, wants to cut taxes and fees by $500 million in 2014. He has already announced his support for a 10-day back-to-school sales tax holiday and cuts in automobile registration fees.

Scott will release his entire budget recommendations on Wednesday.

The Florida Legislature will craft a new state budget during the annual session that starts in March.
