Freedom Week is coming to Florida July 1-7, and it’s the newest sales tax holiday signed into law earlier this year.
During the week, Florida shoppers will get provides 7 days of sales tax savings on outdoor recreation purchases, tickets for events, museums, the arts, and more.
Items that will be sales tax exempt include the first $15 of the price of sunscreen or insect repellent, 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. Even admission to state parks is tax-free, as well.
Here are the full details of what is covered:

Events may be held from July 1 to December 31, 2021, but the tickets must be purchased during this week to qualify.
The sales tax holiday does not apply to the rental or repair of any of the qualifying items. Additionally, the sales tax holiday does not apply to sales in a theme park, an entertainment complex, public lodging establishment, or airport.
The next (and last) sales tax holiday of the year will be the Back-to-School event that kicks off July 31, 2021. I’ll have all the information on this just prior, so be sure to follow us on social media!
