Food & Beverage Tax

When this problem was first assessed in 1992, it was deemed to be too large for the private sector to fund alone, and an "ongoing" source of public funding was needed. The Florida Legislature, supported by Governor Chiles and the Miami-Dade County Commission, made it possible for there to be a 1% sales tax on food and beverages sold in the larger restaurants in our community.

NOTE: Fifteen percent (15%) of the total tax collection is used for domestic violence programs.
