No sales tax on sunscreen, more for Freedom week

Floridians facing economic pressure from inflation will get a second crack to save on “freedom” starting Friday.

Wrapped around the Fourth of July for the second consecutive year, a sales-tax “holiday” dubbed “Freedom Week” will provide tax breaks on a wide range of recreational activities and outdoor gear.

Lawmakers included freedom week in an annual tax package (HB 7071) that also offers other tax holidays and sales-tax exemptions. The state has already held a disaster-preparedness tax holiday around the June 1 start of hurricane season and will hold a back- to-school tax holiday later in the summer.
