Stock up on supplies
Friday, 20 May 2011
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginians who want to stock up on batteries, bottled water and other supplies for the hurricane season will get a tax break next week.
Starting May 25 and continuing for seven days, a sales tax holiday will spare them state and local levies for items deemed eligible. They include flashlights, first aid kits and big-ticket items such as generators priced at $1,000 or less.
U.S. government forecasters announced Thursday they expect three to six major hurricanes from an above average Atlantic storm season.
