MIAMI (AP) -- Floridians can avoid paying sales tax next week on hurricane preparation supplies.

The sales tax holiday begins Saturday and ends June 8.

Floridians will be able to purchase batteries, flashlights, tarps and even generators worth $750 or less without having to pay the state's 6 percent sales tax. The Atlantic hurricane season begins Sunday and runs through Nov. 30.

The hurricane tax holiday is one of three holidays passed during this spring's state legislative session. A back-to-school sales tax holiday will run from Aug. 1-3, and residents will be able to purchase energy-efficient appliances costing $1,500 or less without paying sales tax from Sept. 19-21.
