2017 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday

Tomorrow is the first day of the 2017 hurricane season, and this weekend will give you the chance to stock up on essential supplies while saving some money.

June 2nd -June 4th is a tax-free weekend in the state of Florida, meaning that the Florida sales tax will not be applied to qualifying hurricane supplies such as flashlights, batteries, first-aid kits, and even generators. Details on what items qualify can be found on the Florida Department of Revenue’s website.

Florida weather can be unpredictable, and it is never too early to be prepared for a major storm. Take advantage of the tax-free weekend to make sure you and your family are ready for hurricanes this season.
