Get ready to save some money

Do you like to save money? Of course, you do!
Do you like to be prepared in case of an emergency? Of course, you do!
Well, from now through Saturday, May 31, you can accomplish both of these things at one time.
Hurricane season officially begins June 1, and Virginia state officials are emphasizing the need for citizens to be prepared.
And to help you get you and your family ready for any power outages, flooding, etc. which might result from the hurricanes and the tropical storms spinning off them, beginning this year, consumers can take advantage of a tax break when shopping for such products as generators, batteries, food-storage containers, first aid kits and even bottled water.
For this past Sunday up through this Saturday, Virginia is holding its first Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday.
During the week-long event, certain purchases will be exempt from the 5 percent state and local retail sales tax.
Sales tax will not be charged on generators costing $1,000 or less, or on 22 other products selling for $60 or less each.
The “holiday,” approved by the 2007 General Assembly, will take place each year during the last week of May through 2012 after which the holiday is scheduled to expire.
Information on the hurricane-preparedness holiday for both consumers and retailers is available on the Department of Taxation’s Web site at tax.virginia.gov.
So, check out what items you might need to get prepared, and then check the web site. You can save a little money and a whole lot of worry at the same time!
