    Florida has a "hurricane tax holiday" once a year, at the beginning of the hurricane season, in which you don't have to pay any state sales tax on emergency hurricane supplies. I wonder if we could get spare ammo included in the definition of "emergency hurricane supplies."

    Actually they did not have it this year & no you couls not get ammo tax free, just flash lights, batteries & such. I like the Idea, these people need to think outside the box. Be nice to pick up an $800 AR tax free as well.

    I build up stuff year round, and since I buy my ammo by mail order that wouldn't help. One suggestion: Publix and Winn Dixie frequently have buy one/get one sales. When they do, I buy as much of the nonperishable sale items as I can. By doing this, I live off the stored sale items, which allows me to only buy when things are on sale.

    I do the same with freezable stuff, as well. This plan also has the side effect of ensuring that I have nearly 3 months of food stored away.

    Not for hurricanes in particular but along sales tax holiday lines, South Carolina this year passed the "Second Amendment Recognition Act" which was part of a larger sales tax bill. It exempts handguns, rifles and shotguns from the state sales tax during "Second Amendment Weekend", the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, starting this year.
