RPOF's Mostly True claim about Charlie Crist and taxes

Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill that will cut auto tag fees and pointed the finger at his predecessor for raising them in the first place.

"We are going to right the wrong of the 2009 tax increase that Charlie Crist enacted," Scott said as he signed the fee rollback on April 2.

Scott, a Republican, is expected to face Democratic frontrunner Crist in November.

The Republican Party of Florida joined the Crist-as-tax-hiker chorus on Twitter: ".@charliecrist raised taxes in 2009 and won't rule out raising taxes again."

We’ll examine what type of taxes were raised under Crist in 2009 and what he has said about raising taxes in the future. Read PolitiFact's full report.
