Would you like to buy a set of professional tools without paying full price? From Saturday, September 3 to Friday, September 9, Florida marine contractors, boat owners, mechanics and hobbyists can score state-wide tax savings on a variety of tools that are commonly used by skilled trade workers. This sales tax holiday was established by the Florida Legislature in 2021 to support Florida residents and businesses.
For most tools, a specified amount has been set by the Florida Legislature per item or category of item. Retail stores will not collect state sales tax until the retail price exceeds this specified amount. Then, the stores will only tax the portion of your purchase that exceeds the legislature’s set threshold. However, the sales tax holiday does not include rentals of eligible items or sales that occur within a theme park, entertainment complex, public lodging establishment or airport.
