DeSantis proposes new sales tax exemptions on a host of items – WWSB

UPDATED with details from news conference.
BRADENTON, Fla. (WWSB) – Gov. Ron DeSanis announced a proposal for a new round of sales tax exemptions Tuesday, on items including diapers and strollers, pet food and medical supplies and equipment.
Speaking in Bradenton, DeSantis announced the new tax breaks, some of them permanent and others temporary. “I’m proud that Florida has a record budget surplus and am happy to propose historic tax relief to Florida families,” he said at the Siesta Key Oyster Bar. “I look forward to working with the Legislature to bring this major relief to Florida families.”
The owner of Anna Maria Oyster Bar John Horne received a call on Monday asking if he would host the governor for his speech. Horne said he was more than happy to have the governor at his restaurant. He also said he agrees with what he had to say.
“That’s as many people as I’ve seen out here on our patio,” said Horne. “We do need to help families. I think this new discount for people who are using our toll roads [is good]. I mean it’s going to help locals. Why not let the tourists pay the biggest chunk of that?”
Aubrey Petrat said she appreciates the effort to bring down costs. However, she’s curious how much it will affect the everyday workers.
“There’s always two sides to it. Yes, it might be helping out the middle class in this way. But, they’re going to be taking away from the middle class in another way. There’s always some type of little add-on that makes it where the middle class won’t benefit,” said Petrat
The proposals reinstate the two-week Back to School tax holiday for families in the fall and adds an additional two-week holiday in the spring for children returning to school after the winter break.
The two holiday periods would save Florida families an estimated $210 million, the governor’s office said.
The new proposals include:
The proposal also includes a continuation of tax holidays for the 2023-2024 fiscal year:
