On Tuesday, Florida Governor Rick Scott visited Hall Hardware in West Palm Beach, to announce the beginning of the 2018 Hurricane Season and how important it is to be prepared.

The 2018 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday was passed by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by Governor Rick Scott. This sales tax holiday begins Friday, June 1, 2018 and extends through Thursday, June 7, 2018.

During this sales tax holiday period, qualifying items related to disaster preparedness are exempt from sales tax. However, the sales tax holiday does not apply to the rental or repair of any of the qualifying items. Additionally, the sales tax holiday does not apply to sales in a theme park, entertainment complex, public lodging establishment or airport.

During this holiday, Floridians will not pay sales tax on flashlights, batteries, generators, and other vital supplies to be prepared during a disaster.
