TALLAHASSEE --- With a sales-tax “holiday” starting next week, retailers are expecting big spending on disaster-preparedness supplies by Floridians who have fresh memories of Hurricane Irma.

The six-month hurricane season arrives June 1, along with a weeklong period in which state and local sales taxes will be lifted on a list of disaster supplies. The discount period, for example, means about 90 cents to $1.05 in sales taxes will not be applied to a $15 package of batteries or $45 to $52 is left off the purchase of a generator that costs $750.
