Gov. Scott’s proposed fee and tax cuts have merit, especially on the reducing of fee’s that hit taxpayers DIRECTLY in the wallet.
The Governor wants to reduce the renewal fees for regular driver’s licenses Currently they are at $48 dollars, under Scott’s proposal it would drop to just $20 bucks. Fees for first-time licenses would also drop from $48 to $27.
Also, reducing the fee on commercial driver’s licenses from $75 to $67, while making a 18 percent reduction on traffic-citation fees for motorists who attend a basic driver- improvement school.
The Governor also wants a 10-day back-to-school sales tax “holiday” on clothes and school supplies and three weeks of disaster preparedness tax “holidays” in May, June and July.
