Lawmakers this year weren’t able to overhaul the state’s tax system, but that didn’t stop them from handing out tax breaks to some businesses before the 2011 legislative session ended Thursday, AJC reporter James Salzer writes.
The House gave final approval to a bill that would continue a sales tax break for customers of companies such as Gulfstream that refurbish high-priced private jets, Salzer reports.
Tacked onto that bill was a costly measure to give a sales tax break to businesses that build certain tourist attractions, entertainment centers, marinas, golf courses, hotel and conference centers, auto racetracks, and Georgia crafts and products centers, Salzer writes.
And lawmakers alsopassed an extension of a fuel tax break for Delta Air Lines before they ended the session, Salzer reports.
