TALLAHASSSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida is reaching a deal to bring major Internet retailer Amazon to the state.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott will announce Thursday that Amazon would bring more than 3,000 jobs to the state between now and 2016. The company is poised to spend more than $300 million on new warehouses.
The governor had previously said no to a deal to bring Amazon to the state. He had expressed concerns that signing off on such a deal would result in tax increases for Floridians.
Scott's office said that once here Amazon would begin collecting state sales taxes from residents at the time it is required under state law.
Currently, Floridians are supposed to pay taxes for online purchases, but there's no way to enforce the law.
