House Passes All-Star Tax Exemption Bill
TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – With no debate, the House on Wednesday unanimously approved a proposal (HB 231) that would offer a sales-tax exemption for admissions to Major League Soccer all-star games that would be held in Florida.
The bill expands an admissions-tax exemption that already applies to events such as all-star games hosted by Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League and the National Football League.
Also, the bill would clarify that events surrounding NBA all-star games are exempt from the tax.
The Senate version (SB 330) of the bill is ready to go to the full Senate.
