Sales tax holiday for children’s diapers; baby and toddler clothing, apparel, and shoes July 1, 2022–June 30, 2023

 

This tax-free period lasts a whole year.

There are no price restrictions for this sales tax holiday, but as with the tax-free period for children’s books, there is an age limit.

As explained by the Florida Department of Revenue, “During this sales tax exemption period, tax is not due on the retail sale of children’s diapers or on baby and toddler clothing, apparel, and shoes primarily intended for children age 5 or younger.” Too bad, parents of children aged six and up.
