Manatee's Top 10 Taxpayers



Manatee County's top 10 taxpayers for 2007 look very similar to the rankings in 2006, according to the Manatee County Tax Collector.

The order of the top four, headed by Florida Power & Light Corp., remained unchanged. There was some shuffling in the order from the fifth through ninth spots.

But only last year's number 10, Quizno's, fell off the list, replaced by Bealls.



The top 10 are listed below:
