Impact windows, doors, and garage doors are the gold standard for hurricane preparedness.
Now, they’re more accessible than ever for Florida residents.
The Florida Home Hardening Tax Exemption eliminates sales tax on impact windows, doors, and garage doors, so you can have the home performance and peace of mind you want — for less than you’d expect. You may also qualify for the My Safe Florida Home grant (see below) and insurance discounts.
What you need to know about the Florida Home Hardening Tax Exemption
Purchases of impact windows, doors, and garage doors between July 1, 2022, and June 30, 2024, qualify for Florida sales tax exemption.
Products must be labeled as “impact” or have an impact rating.
The state of Florida will not collect sales tax on the purchases of impact windows, doors, and garage doors.
Installing impact products may also qualify you for a homeowners’ insurance discount. Contact your provider to learn more.
