Gov. Rick Scott's Half True claim about 40 tax cuts

It seems like just yesterday we were analyzing Gov. Rick Scott’s claim that he had cut taxes for Floridians 24 times. But on May 13, Scott’s campaign raised the count to 40.

"Governor Scott Cut Taxes 40 Times For Florida Families," Scott for Floridaannounced on Twitter. "40 tax cuts in 4 years. #letskeepworking."

Scott and the Legislature don’t have the budget shortfalls of years past, so tax cuts were the name of the game in Tallahassee in 2014, especially with Scott up for re-election. What were these new cuts he was touting? We hit the lawbooks to find out.
