DeSantis Suspends Taxation with Executive Order


Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) just announced an executive order, calling for the Department of Revenue to immediate suspend any and all taxes imposed under Chapter 201, Florida Statues, regarding notes and other written obligations that are pursuant to Title I of the CARES Act.

This is Executive Order 20-95, and it allows employers who are receiving money from the federal CARES Act to use the full dollar amount to pay rent and help any employees they manage.

This executive order comes at a time when the United States is seeing a high number of Americans signing up for unemployment, and the state of Florida is also experiencing a rise in cases with citizens stricken with the Coronavirus.
