Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed bill authorizing three sales tax holidays for 2021, where sales taxes on select purchases will be temporarily suspended.
Here are the details and dates to mark in your shopping calendar:
May 26-June 6: “Disaster Preparedness” Tax Holiday
This 10-day tax holiday allows Floridians to prepare for hurricane season while saving money on disaster preparedness items such as flashlights under $40, batteries less than $50, tarps under $100, generators less than $1,000, and more.

July 1-7: “Freedom Week” Tax Holiday
This new sales tax holiday provides 7 days of sales tax savings on outdoor recreation purchases, such as the first $100 of the sales price of sunglasses, the first $200 of the sales prices of tents, and the first $500 of the sales price of kayaks or canoes, as well as tickets for events, museums, the arts, and more. Events may be held from July 1 to December 31, 2021, but the tickets must be purchased during this week to qualify.
July 31-Aug 9: “Back-to-School” Sales Tax Holiday
During this annual event, Floridians will pay no sales tax for certain clothing of $60 or less per item, school supplies of $15 or less per item, and the first $1,000 of personal computers and related accessories.
