Hurricane Preparedness Sales tax Holiday

Posted on May 30, 2014 at 11:00 AM

 

Hurricane season in Florida stretches from June 1 to Nov. 30. The season is now upon us, and with 1,197 miles of coastline, there are no areas in Florida immune to the forces of a hurricane. Hurricanes and severe weather require our attention and preparation. During and after a hurricane, you may need supplies to keep your family safe and healthy. To help Floridians prepare for hurricane season, this year’s Florida Legislature established a tax–free holiday from May 31 to June 8 for you to purchase supplies that will help you during an emergency.

 

Some of the items that will be tax-free include:

 

Reusable ice packs, selling for $10 or less

Portable self-powered lights, battery–powered flashlights, battery- or gas-powered lanterns, candles, selling for $20 or less

Gas or diesel fuel tanks, selling for $25 or less

Food storage coolers, ice chests, first–aid kits, selling for $30 or less

Packages of AA–cell, C–cell, D–cell, 6–volt or 9–volt batteries, selling for $30 or less

Portable self–powered radios, two–way radios, weather band radios, selling for $50 or less

Tarps, other waterproof sheetings, selling for $50 or less

Ground anchor systems, tie–down kits, bungee cords, ratchet straps, selling for $50 or less

Portable generators used to provide light, communications or preserve food during a power outage, selling for $750 or less

These exemptions do not apply to sales inside of a theme park, entertainment complex, lodging establishment or airport.

 

For a complete list of qualifying items, visit the Florida Department of Revenue’s website. For additional information, contact the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services at�a href="http://www.freshfromflorida.com/Divisions-Offices/Consumer-Services" mce_href="http://www.freshfromflorida.com/Divisions-Offices/Consumer-Services">www.800helpfla.com�r by calling 1-800-HELP-FLA (435-7352) or 1-800-FL-AYUDA (352-9832) en Español.

Carrie Underwood is my favourite US contry singer. She is young, beautiful and charming woman in her 30s. Her strong voice takes me away from all problems of this world so I can enjoy my life and listen songs created by her voice. Now the singer is on a Cry Pretty 360 Tour started in May of 2019. The concerts scheduled for the whole 2019, up to the last day of October. Tickets are available for all men and women with different income. If you are a country music lover as me, then you must visit at least one of her concert. All tour dates are available at the Carrie Underwood tour Dallas. Open the website and make yourself familiar with all Carrie Underwood concerts in 2019!
