On January 10, 2017, SAX TAXI, Inc. dissolved, filing with the Florida Secretary of State that it had ceased doing business.
SAX was the firm opened by JAMES HOWARD, who planned on acquiring a monopoly in the market for taxis in St. Augustine. SAX and HOWARD enlisted ST. JOHNS LAW GROUP, lawyers DOUGLAS NELSON BURNETT and JAMES GEORGE WHITEHOUSE to draft legislation, a proposed ordinance for the City of St. Augustine that would have erased competitors' rights by banning cabs over ten years old ore with more than 200,000 miles.

Now SAX is gone.
SAX was incorporated October 29, 2014.
SAX had fifteen cabs on the road.
SAX provided shuttle bus service for the St. Augustine Beach Civic Association concerts.
SAX was a sponsor of St. Augustine Beach Civic Association events.
