No Hurricane Sales Tax Holiday
The state legislature voted down a hurricane tax break holiday, citing a budget 4 billion dollars lighter than a year ago. This is the first time in three years the state didnâ€™t implement a sales tax holiday for hurricane season. Governor Charlie Crist urges families to prepare and says thereâ€™s still an incentive to stock up.
"The good news this year is that the private sector is really stepping up to the plate," said Crist. "Thereâ€™s a lot of different outlets in Florida that are having specials for people to be able to purchase the kind of things that they need, coolers, water, batteries, flashlights, the essentials that you need during hurricane season to be ready to have your plan and be in place so Iâ€™m very pleased about that."
Besides the hurricane preparedness tax break, the legislature said no to a back to school tax break and a gas tax holiday.
