Florida residents get ‘tax holiday’ for hurricane supplies

National News

TALLAHASSEE, FL (WCBD, AP) – Florida residents will save on hurricane supplies under new sales tax holiday signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis.

The bill was signed Wednesday at the annual governor’s hurricane conference.

Hurricane supplies will be tax-free from May 31st until June 6th and includes items like batteries, generators, weather radios, and fuel cans.

The new law also provides a number of tax breaks to help with Hurricane Michael recovery, like building supplies, replacement fencing, and storm debris removal – it also includes a one-year property tax break for farmers who can no longer use their land.
