The Florida Legislature’s 2022 taxation bill, HB 7071, includes the usual characters in regard to sales tax holidays: Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday, Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday and the Freedom Week Sales Tax Holiday. To consumers’ delight, all of these initiatives return in a similar or expanded form from last year. However, a new and exciting sales tax holiday will be joining the ranks in 2022. FRSA led the charge on an initiative this year to bring tax relief to skilled workers and skilled students. I’m thrilled to announce that the Legislature agreed with this effort and the “Tool Time” sales tax holiday – naming credit goes to the smash hit sitcom Home Improvement - has been born.
It’s TOOL TIME!
