Florida is the new kid on the hurricane sales tax holiday block, but the Sunshine State’s event is the longest. Floridians have nine days — from Sunday, May 31, through Sunday, June 8 — to get ready for tropical storms and hurricanes.
During that period, retailers won’t collect the state’s 6 percent sales tax on a wide range of storm-related products across six price ranges: $10 or less, $20 or less, $25 or less, $30 or less, $50 or less and, taking a big jump, $750 or less.
Lower priced items include reusable ice and lighting supplies while the top tax-free tier covers portable generators. Florida’s Department of Revenue PDF product list has details.
