WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) -  Governor Rick Scott has kicked off his "It's Your Money" tax cut tour, and the Palm Beach County Convention Center was his first stop Tuesday morning.

The state is projected to have a sizable budget surplus next year. So, the governor is pledging to cut a half a billion dollars in taxes and fees.

The governor does not plan to specify which taxes and fees he wants to cut, but one possible target is to roll back automobile fees that were raised in 2009.

Scott is touring the state and asking all of us to let him know where you want to see cuts and fees. "Well, it's your money. Next year, we're going to have the biggest general revenue in this history of this state. We're going to have a budget surplus now. As you know, I came in with a big budget deficit. We've turned the economy around. So as we do this, we should give some of your money back," Rick Scott said.

The state forecast that is projecting the surplus also says half of the surplus may be a one-time windfall. That means the legislature may have to find a way to pay for any long-term tax cuts.
