Senator Hays wants to change Florida tax system
FLORIDA -- You may have paid your income tax yesterday, but Senator Alan Hays wants to change the current system.
He wants the Florida legislature to tell congress to enact a flat tax.
The 23-% tax would be applied to every purchase.
Hays says it will bring fairness back to the system and allow consumers to control how much they pay in taxes.
Hays introduced the legislation in December.
He says it is not binding on congress, but it does send a message.
