ORLANDO, Fla. - Florida Gov. Rick Scott is signing a bill that would create three sales tax holidays this year.
Scott is scheduled to sign the bill during a visit Monday to the annual Governor's Hurricane Conference.
The measure (HB 5601) includes a nine-day sales tax holiday on the sale of hurricane preparation supplies such as batteries and generators. This holiday starts May 31.
The legislation also authorizes a three-day back-to-school sales tax holiday in August.
Under the bill, shoppers would not have to pay sales taxes on any clothes worth $100 or less, school supplies worth $15 or less or on the first $750 of a personal computer.
The bill also includes a three-day sales tax holiday in September on the purchase of energy-efficient appliances.
