During the first week of July, outdoor recreational items and events will be exempt from sales tax. Among the list of tax-exempt events are concerts, ballets, movies, sporting events, fairs, and festivals scheduled from July 1st to December 31st, 2021

"We are proud of being a free state. We're proud of being open. We want taxpayers to benefit if they are participating in all these things," said Governor DeSantis during a press conference Friday.

The tax-free list also includes select boating and water activity supplies, camping essentials, fishing gear, team, and individual sporting equipment (golf balls or a catcher's mitt for example), among other general outdoor supplies.

Purchase of seasonal passes to special events and tickets to state parks and museums make the list too.
