Sales Tax Holiday Helps Florida Families

A tax free weekend Sept. 19 through Sept. 21 will save consumers on items new Energy Star and WaterSense products including dishwashers, refrigerators, room air conditioners, swimming pool pumps, sink faucets and showerheads.

“Floridians will get a final opportunity to shop tax-free this weekend, as part of the nearly $500 million tax cut passed by the Legislature and signed by Governor Scott this year. Beginning on Friday, September 19th, and lasting until September 21st, taxpayers will save their hard-earned dollars on the first $1500 of an energy efficient appliance purchase thanks to the sales tax holiday,” said Dominic M. Calabro, President and CEO of Florida TaxWatch.

“This sales tax holiday is a great way to provide broad based tax relief for Florida families and retirees, while promoting conservation and environmentally friendly purchases that will help Florida retain its natural beauty and maintain our limited state resources,” he said.

Savings will also be available through Gulf Power’s EarthCents rebate program that can refund customers anywhere from $25 to $250 on items like water heaters, washers and freezers.
