CEO: Florida’s state income tax not a factor in decision to move here from Illinois 

By Jeff Ostrowski

Cancer Treatment Centers of America's Philadelphia hospital.

Asked why he decided to move the 225-person headquarters of Cancer Treatment Centers of America to Boca Raton from Schaumburg, Ill., Chief Executive Gerard van Grinsven rattled off a list of reasons.

He likes the state’s growing population, the region’s three airports, and Boca’s “very dynamic business climate.”

One thing van Grinsven doesn’t care about? State income taxes. Gov. Rick Scott and economic development boosters tirelessly tout Florida’s lack of state income taxes, but van Grinsven said he simply didn’t care about that issue.

“The decision was not a state-income tax decision at all,” he said.
