Who isn’t looking to save a little money nowadays?

If you reside in Florida, get ready to mark your calendar.

Governor Ron DeSantis revealed there will be nine sales tax holidays/exemption periods that will occur over the next several months.

When you check out the list, you may notice one of the newest holidays is all about “Tool Time.” Makes me think of Tim Allen’s hit TV series. During this holiday, you can receive tax breaks on common retail tools.

If you have little children, you’ll love this one: From July 1 through June 30, 2023, no tax is required on children’s diapers, baby and toddler clothing, apparel and shoes (for children 5 and younger).

And how bad would we all love a break from paying taxes on motor fuel? This exemption period may come holiday in October, prior to the mid-terms.

You can see the complete list of the nine periods below (and for more on this story, please visit our friends at ABC Action News):

  • May 14 - August 14 — Children's books

  • May 28 - June 10 — Disaster preparedness
