Today, Governor Rick Scott visited Hall Hardware in West Palm Beach, where he spoke about the beginning of the 2018 Hurricane Season and how important it is to be prepared. He highlighted the disaster preparedness sales tax holiday that will begin this Friday, June 1st and go through June 7th. During this holiday, Floridians will not pay sales tax on flashlights, batteries, generators, and other critical supplies needed to stay prepared during a disaster.
This holiday will save Florida families $5.8 million. Since Governor Scott has been in office, taxes have been cut nearly 100 times, saving Florida families over $10 billion.
