As Florida recovers from the impact of Hurricane Idalia, a tax holiday continues for Florida residents to purchase or restock their hurricane supplies.

The holiday ends on Sept. 8, and is meant to provide some economic relief for Floridians who prepare by stocking up on batteries, flashlights and other supplies. The Florida Department of Revenue provides a detailed list of items included in the tax-relief measure. They include items for the household or for pets.

For the household, Floridians can get a sales tax break on smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and carbon monoxide detectors under $70. Also on the list are toilet paper, paper towels laundry supplies, cleaning sprays and disinfectant wipes under $30.

Families can buy portable generators retailing at under $3,000 tax free. Dog or cat food under 50 pounds, pet medications and portable kennels all qualify for Florida’s tax holiday.
