Posted on June 27, 2024 by Karen Lake

During July 2024, consumers in Florida can purchase recreation equipment, outdoor items and admissions to entertainment and cultural events within the state without paying state sales tax. The state’s legislature passed the annual Freedom Month Sales-Tax Holiday to help make it more affordable for families to enjoy all that the Sunshine State has to offer its residents and visitors.

Items and experiences that will be exempt from sales tax from July 1 through July 31 include the following:

Boating and Water Activity Supplies

Fishing Supplies

Camping Supplies

Outdoor Supplies

Admission, Annual Passes and Season Tickets 

Admission to Special Events Scheduled between July 1, 2024, and December 31, 2024
