Gov. Rick Scott Makes Senate Campaign Stop In Escambia County

April 25, 2018

Gov. Rick Scott hosted a campaign roundtable Tuesday with Escambia County business leaders in one of the recently announced low tax Opportunity Zones as stablished in the federal Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, encourage long-term investment and job creation in targeted communities by reducing taxes for many job creators.

Low Tax Opportunity Zones enhance local communities’ ability to attract businesses, developers and financial institutions to invest in targeted areas by allowing investors to defer capital gains taxes through investments in federally established Opportunity Funds.

Seven Census tracts in Escambia County, including Century and the immediate surrounding area.

Over the past week, the Governor has hosted multiple roundtables with Florida business leaders to discuss the Opportunity Zones, cutting taxes and his desire to service in Washington to fight for these priorities on behalf of Florida’s families and job creators.
