Americans for Prosperity Urges Lake County to Reject Tourism Tax Hike

Sep 21, 2021 by AFP

“While the tax may be directed at tourists and visitors, everyone will end up paying it.”

LAKE COUNTY, FL — Americans for Prosperity – Florida (AFP-FL) launched a direct mail campaign in Lake County, calling on residents to ask Commissioners to oppose the proposed increase of the tourism development tax. The Lake County Board of Commissioners could vote as early as September 28.

AFP-FL State Director Skylar Zander released the following statement: 

“This tax is aimed directly at the tourism industry — one of the sectors most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. When taxes go up, less people will come to visit Lake County, meaning they won’t be spending money at local shops and restaurants. While the tax may be directed at tourists and visitors, everyone will end up paying it. We are calling on Lake County residents to urge the Board of Commissioners to reject this tax hike.”
