SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, May 25, 2023 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — As hurricane season looms for Puerto Ricans, Batteries Plus locations throughout Puerto Rico will be participating in a Tax-Free Weekend by providing consumers the opportunity to save money on essential items needed when preparing for storm season. In conjunction with the Puerto Rico Internal Revenue Code of 2011, hurricane preparation items are relieved of taxes allowing for a more affordable price during impending severe weather emergencies. The tax-free pricing will be in effect from Friday, May 26 until Sunday, May 28.

“During this economically challenging time, saving money means more than ever, but during a time of need such as hurricane season, it can be life-saving. We’re happy to help provide critical emergency items in any way we can for Puerto Rico residents,” said Jose Matos, a Batteries Plus franchisee in Puerto Rico. “As hurricane season begins, we want to ensure everyone is informed, supplied, and prepared for the season with access to more affordable power sources.”

Preparation items available at Batteries Plus that will receive the exemption include parts and products for portable generators whose sale price does not exceed $3,000 dollars, individual batteries or packs, battery-powered or alternative energy-operated lamps, lanterns, solar emergency equipment, smoke or carbon monoxide detectors, mobile phone batteries and chargers, portable radios, two-way radios, battery-operated fans, and much more.
