TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis held a press conference in Tampa, Tuesday morning to highlight the Home Hardening Tax Exemption Initiative.
 
Championed by CFO Patronis, and signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis, the Home Hardening Tax Exemption is a two-year, $462 million statewide sales tax exemption period on impact-resistant doors, garage doors, and windows to allow Floridians to harden their home against storms.
 
CFO Patronis said, “This is the state of Florida giving incentive to our citizens by giving their buying power back in those dollars 100% of them in this particular case could stay right in Florida, that’s a great win-win for the taxpayers.”
 
The temporary sales tax exemption period begins July 1, 2022 and, ends June 30, 2024.

 
Patronis said there is up to $10,000 available to each household.
 
“Ultimately between the sales tax savings and grant dollars we’re going to put $612 of tax payer dollars, your dollars, back into your pocket in order to strengthen your homes,” CFO Patronis said.
