Hurricane season starts June 1 which means it’s time to review your hurricane plan and stock up on supplies. To help with that, consumers can purchase qualifying disaster preparedness supplies tax-free during the 2023 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday. This year there are two exemption periods:

Saturday, May 27 – Friday, June 9
Saturday, August 26 – Friday, September 8

The Florida Department of Revenue has created a website that lists all of the exempt items and pricing. They also have a FAQ page with a printable list of items as well as phone number to call if you need additional information.
