May 31st, 2019 · Leave a Comment

June marks the start of hurricane season and a time for Floridians to stock up on qualifying disaster preparedness supplies exempt from sales tax.

The 2019 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday is underway and ends at 11:59 p.m. Thursday, June 6, 2019.

“The 2019 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday provides Floridians with a great opportunity to get prepared for the upcoming hurricane season,” said Jim Zingale, executive director of the Florida Department of Revenue. “While living in and visiting Florida offers many benefits and advantages, it is important to keep the potential for severe weather hazards and threats in mind. We encourage all Floridians to participate in this sales tax holiday to be proactive and prepare early.”

The Florida Department of Revenue issued a Tax Information Publication (TIP) that addresses the 2019 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday and posted the TIP on www.floridarevenue.com.

The TIP outlines qualifying items ranging from portable, self-powered light sources selling for $20 or less to portable generators selling for $750 or less. 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.
