Need discounts on pet supplies? I gotcha.
The state’s two-week disaster-preparedness tax holiday began this past Memorial Day weekend and thanks to the Girl Scouts, for the first time ever, shoppers will be able to avoid paying sales taxes on numerous types of pet supplies. The puppies have to eat too!
The holiday was part of a broad tax package (HB 7071) that lawmakers passed in March and Gov. Ron DeSantis signed on May 6.
At the request of a Girl Scout Troop 60601 in Palm Harbor, (thank you ladies) lawmakers will be lifting sales taxes on ...
- Pet carriers that cost $100 or less
- Pet beds that cost $40 or less
- Bags of pet food that cost $30 or less
- Bags of cat litter that cost $25 or less
- Leashes, collars and muzzles that sell for $20 or less
- Packages of pet-waste disposable bags that cost $15 or less
- Cans of pet food that cost $2 or less.
This year’s disaster-preparedness holiday also includes other products including smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and carbon monoxide detectors that cost $70 or less as they become more critical when it comes to safety. Also, people can avoid paying sales taxes on generators that cost $1,000 or less.
