Tax free day to buy hurricane supplies

Good news for everyone living in Florida, Governor Rick Scott is proposing a new tax-free holiday for hurricane supplies.

Shoppers in Florida would be able to buy hurricane supplies without paying sales tax over a span of 15 days.  Scott says the holiday could save taxpayers up to $20 million.

If approved, it would be the first tax-free holiday for hurricane supplies since 2007. Scott also wants to extend the 3-day "back to school" holiday to 10 days.
