As Floridians recover from Hurricane Ian, there will be a state-wide gas tax holiday through the month of October. The tax relief was already planned before the storm, but the relief could be considered timely.
Approved by Gov. Ron DeSantis in May, the Florida Legislature’s tax legislation provided multiple relief items, from tax-free diapers to relief on disaster preparedness items.
The Oct. 1 start to the monthlong tax break at the pump will give residents $0.25 off per gallon when they fill up. It’ll run from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31.
