The 2020 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday in Florida will last from Friday, May 29 to Thursday, June 4.

This sales tax holiday was “passed by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis,” according to the Florida Department of Revenue. “During this sales tax holiday period, qualifying items related to disaster preparedness are exempt from sales tax.”

In order to supply some relief as we approach hurricane season, this holiday was created to provide a small discount on items you can buy to prepare for Florida’s hurricane season which starts June 1.

Some items that will be exempt from sales tax include reusable ice packs, flashlights, batteries, tie-down kits and more. For a full list of qualifying items, click here.
