Florida Remains Great Place for Business

The Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that monitors government fiscal policy, once again has Florida ranked as the nation’s fifth best tax climate for business going into 2011. While some states move up and others down, Florida has remained very steady for six years in a row.
A key factor in Florida's ranking is the lack of a state personal income tax. In addition, Florida also ranks 15th in corporate taxes, 30th in sales taxes, 3rd in unemployment compensation taxes and 28th in real estate taxes.
Not too bad when you consider everything else that the State of Florida has to offer.
