With the 2023 Hurricane Season starting tomorrow, state Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis urged Floridians to use the 2023 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday to save money while stocking up on hurricane supplies.
May 27 through Friday, June 9, consumers will be able to purchase much needed hurricane-preparation supplies without paying taxes. This 14-day tax holiday allows Floridians to prepare for hurricane season while saving money on disaster preparedness items such as flashlights under $40, batteries less than $50, tarps under $100, generators less than $3,000, and more.
“Unfortunately, it’s not if a storm will take aim at Florida, but when. Now is the time to stock up on hurricane preparedness supplies like flashlights, batteries, and generators before a storm strikes. NOAA has predicted up to 17 named storms and up to 9 hurricanes this year, - now is the time to check on your hurricane supplies and take advantage of not paying sales tax on many storm-related essentials."
You can purchase critical hurricane supplies now to ensure your family is prepared and safe this hurricane season. I encourage all Floridians to take advantage of this great sales tax holiday to make sure your family, home, and your business is protected."
