Florida Kicks Off ‘Freedom Month’ Sales Tax Holiday

Last week, Florida started the “Freedom Month” sales tax holiday, allowing consumers to avoid sales taxes on various recreational items and event tickets. The initiative, running through the entire month of July, is part of a tax package signed by Governor Ron DeSantis and covers items like boating, fishing, and camping supplies, as well as tickets for concerts, sports, and theater.

The tax holiday excludes rentals and certain purchases and is expected to reduce state and local tax revenues by $91.8 million.
