Disaster Prep Tax Holiday

As we gear up for hurricane season in Florida, there’s some good news to share! The Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday kicks off on June 1, meaning certain important items like flashlights, coolers, generators, and more will be tax-free for two weeks. This is a big relief for folks getting ready for any storms headed our way.

Plus, there’s another tax holiday coming up from August 24 to September 6, so mark your calendars! To make sure you’re ready for whatever comes our way, it’s a good idea to take stock of your belongings. Snap some pictures and jot down how much things cost in case they get damaged during bad weather. It might take some time, but it’ll really help if you ever need to file an insurance claim.

Mark Friedlander from the Insurance Information Institute suggests checking your insurance policies too, especially since the cost of fixing up homes after disasters has gone up by about 55% from 2019 to 2022. Let’s stay prepared and keep each other safe!
