Tax-free holidays bring big savings

A series of sales tax holidays over the coming months will allow Florida residents to save money on essential items and summer activities.


This year’s Disaster Preparedness sales tax holidays will take place June 1-14 and Aug. 24-Sept. 6. Get your hurricane kit ready by purchasing essential items, tax-free, such as batteries, flashlights, portable generators and even supplies necessary for the evacuation of household pets.


The Freedom Month Sales Tax Holiday will run throughout July. Entry fees to state parks and museums, as well as outdoor recreational items such as fishing gear, boating supplies and camping equipment, will be tax-free. 


During the 2024 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday, from July 29 to Aug. 11, parents, guardians, and students can buy school supplies, clothing and electronics like laptops and tablets tax-free, easing the financial burden of the new academic year.


Visit the Florida Department of Revenue website to see the full list of items eligible for each sales tax holiday.
