ACTION NEEDED: New tax codes for Florida's 2022 disaster preparation sales tax holiday

Overview

Recent Florida legislation has established a 14-day disaster preparedness sales tax holiday beginning on Saturday, May 28, 2022, and ending on Friday, June 10, 2022.

During the sales tax holiday period, tax is not due on the retail sale of eligible items related to disaster preparedness. To support Florida’s sales tax holiday, Avalara has created several new tax codes for qualifying merchandise.

For more information on the sales tax holiday, see the Florida tax information publication #22A01-03.

See the Resolution section below on what you need to do by May 28, 2022.
