A three-month long summer sales tax holiday that began on Memorial Day and runs through Labor Day, is expected to save Floridians nearly $230 million. Items included in the Freedom Summer Sales Tax Holiday are:

Outdoor recreation purchases such as supplies for camping, fishing, and general outdoor activities including kayaks and canoes.
Boating and water activity supplies such as life jackets, coolers, and pool floats.
Tickets for museums and events such as concerts, fairs, sporting events, and theater productions.
Entry to state parks, including annual passes.
Children’s toys.
Children’s athletic equipment.

This tax holiday is part of Florida’s $2.7 billion tax cut that Governor DeSantis approved in the Framework for Freedom Budget. Also included in the budget is a permanent sales tax exemption for baby and toddler items such as diapers, baby wipes, cribs, and strollers. Additionally, the Governor signed a one-year sales tax exemption for gas stoves to help families purchase new appliances.
