ACTION NEEDED: Florida Freedom Week sales tax holiday July 1-7, 2021

What is happening

The Florida Department of Revenue is offering a Freedom Week sales tax holiday July 1 through July 7, 2021. During this time, admissions to music events, sporting events, cultural events, specified performances, movies, museums, state parks, and fitness facilities are exempt from sales tax. Also exempt from sales tax during this holiday period are qualifying boating and water activity supplies, camping supplies, fishing supplies, general outdoor supplies, and sports equipment.

To support Florida’s Sales Tax Holiday, over 30 new tax codes have been created in AvaTax for qualifying outdoor and recreational merchandise. If you collect sales tax in Florida and sell any qualifying merchandise, you’ll need to adjust your tax code mapping for eligible products by July 1 to take advantage of this temporary exemption.

What you need to do

Determine where you manage your item to tax code mapping

  • If you map your items to tax codes in your business application, update the tax code mapping there. 
  • If you map your items to tax codes in AvaTax, update your tax code mapping there.
