Florida – Announcing the Freedom Week Sales Tax Holiday July 1-7, 2021

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Consumers can purchase qualifying recreation and outdoor supplies and admissions to entertainment and cultural events exempt from tax during the Freedom Week Sales Tax Holiday. Passed by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis, the sales tax holiday begins Thursday, July 1 and extends through Wednesday, July 7.

“After a very trying year, we could all use a chance to unwind,” said Jim Zingale, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Revenue. “This sales tax holiday helps consumers save money while enjoying some well-deserved recreation, whether it’s a trip to the beach, attending a concert or festival, or just spending an afternoon fishing.”

The Department has created the Freedom Week Sales Tax Holiday webpage with information and promotional materials for consumers, businesses, and other interested parties. Please visit the page at floridarevenue.com/FreedomWeek/

For more information, please see this Tax Information Publication (TIP), which outlines qualifying items from fishing tackle selling for $5 or less to canoes and kayaks selling for $500 or less. 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, entertainment complex, public lodging establishment or airport.
