The 2022 Florida Tool Time Sales Tax Holiday begins this Saturday and runs through September 9. Skilled trade workers can save on a lots of work-related items. But there’s an important catch – keep an eye on the price of the item you’re buying. Each has a maximum price to get the tax-free savings. Most are pretty reasonable. For example if you’re paying more than $25 for a pair of work gloves, the sales tax probably isn’t going to the deciding factor in your purchase. But the price limits are something to keep an eye on as you shop during the tax-free week in Florida on tools.

• Toolboxes for vehicles selling for $300 or less
• Power tools selling for $300 or less
• Work boots selling for $175 or less
• Power tool batteries selling for $150 or less
• Handheld pipe cutters, drain opening tools, and plumbing inspection equipment selling for $150 or less
• Industry textbooks and code books selling for $125 or less
• Tool belts selling for $100 or less
• Electrical voltage and testing equipment selling for $100 or less
• Shop lights selling for $100 or less
• Toolboxes selling for $75 or less
• Hand tools selling for $50 or less
• Safety glasses selling for $50 or less per pair (or the equivalent if sold in sets of more than one pair)
• Protective coveralls selling for $50 or less
• Duffle bags or tote bags selling for $50 or less
• LED flashlights selling for $50 or less
• Work gloves selling for $25 or less

There is no limit on the number of items you can purchase tax free, but those price limits will be key. If you buy work gloves that are $26, you’re paying the sales tax. Online purchases ARE included in this tax holiday.
