The House Ways and Means Committee has begun its initial work of examining the impact of the federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) for Florida corporate income tax purposes. Today, the committee heard a presentation from committee staff and the Florida Department of Revenue (DOR) on how the changes to the Internal Revenue Code are impacting corporations in Florida and have expanded the tax base. Like many other states, Florida uses federal taxable income as a starting point to determine Florida income for the purposes of corporate income tax. Because of the many changes contained within the TCJA, it is estimated that a full adoption, or “piggyback” of these changes, would increase Florida’s tax base by 13 percent.
