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.

The News Service of Florida contributed to this report.
