Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently signed Florida HB 7071. As part of this legislation, Florida has approved tax holidays for back-to-school and tools used by trade workers.
The Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday will be held between July 25, 2022 and August 7, 2022, giving shoppers the opportunity to purchase clothing, wallets, bags, school supplies, personal computers, and personal computer-related accessories free from tax when the cost per item meets certain threshold requirements.
A new Tools Commonly used by Skilled Trade Workers Sales Tax Holiday will be held between September 3, 2022 and September 9, 2022. Gives shoppers the opportunity to purchase certain tools and equipment needed in skilled trades free from state sales tax when the cost per item meets certain threshold requirements.
