It’s that time of year again. A sales tax holiday will begin on Sunday, May 25, 2014 and run through Saturday, May 31, 2014.
This sales tax holiday offers you a chance to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season while getting a break on the sales tax. During this tax break, certain items including; batteries, flashlights, bottled water, and first aid kits will be exempt. In addition, certain bigger-ticket items are also exempt, e.g., generators priced at $1,000 or less.
