TALLAHASSEE, FLa. (WTXL) — A sales tax holiday, also known as "Freedom Week", is set to begin on Friday, July 1, eliminating sales tax on certain consumer products temporarily.

Ending on Thursday, July 7, the limited time period will remove sales tax on the retail sale of admissions to cultural events, museums, movies, music events, sporting events, state parks, fitness facilities and specified performances.

Eligible supplies for fishing, residential pools, sporting equipment, camping and general outdoor are also exempt from sales tax during this holiday period.
