Once again, the preparedness sales tax free days in Florida are starting, with this year having an 80% chance of above normal activity, it would be wise to take advantage of this now.
This year it is May 21st Through June 1st,
The hurricane related items you can get sales tax free are:
* Flashlights and portable, self-powered light sources — $20 or less * Portable radios, two-way radios and weather-band radios — for $50 or less * Flexible waterproof sheeting (tarps) — $50 or less * Gas or diesel fuel containers — $25 or less * Batteries — $30 or less * Non-electrical food storage coolers — $30 or less * Portable generators — $1,000 or less * Carbon monoxide detectors — $75 or less * Storm shutter devices — $200 or less * Cell phone batteries — $60 or less
This is a good time to stock up for the season, before the mad rush happens when the storms approach.
