Florida Sales Tax Holidays – 2024

Date May 14, 2024

The Florida Department of Revenue has a dedicated webpage addressing each of the sales tax holidays in effect in 2024. The list of sales tax holidays includes:

  • Disaster Preparedness – June 1, 2024 through June 14, 2024 and August 24, 2024 – September 6, 2024
  • Freedom Month – July 1, 2024 through July 31, 2024
  • Back to School – July 29, 2024 – August 11, 2024
  • Tool Time – September 1, 2024 through September 7, 2024

The following sales tax holidays will expire on June 30, 2024:

  • Energy STAR Appliances
  • Home Hardening
  • Gas Stoves

The sales tax holidays will drive additional sales for retailers, but they need to ensure that their point-of-sale systems are properly set up to administer the exemptions. Many of the exemptions are limited by the cost of the item, for example, during Freedom Month there is an exemption on the first $5 of bait or fishing tackle. The exemptions apply to in-store and online sales, so it is imperative that even remote sellers apply the exemptions properly to avoid customer service issues.

The Department’s website contains details on each of the sales tax holidays, including lists of qualifying items and information specific to consumers and retailers.
