Through June 6 — Florida Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday
Just as some states offer back-to-school sales tax holidays, during which they waive sales taxes on purchases like school supplies, some states offer disaster preparedness sales tax holidays.
During these periods, sales taxes are waived for certain products needed to prepare for hurricanes or other natural disasters. (The Atlantic hurricane season officially starts June 1.)
Florida’s 2021 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax holiday started May 28 and runs through June 6. A list of products that qualify for the tax break is available on the Florida Department of Revenue’s website.
June 15 — Deadline for estimated tax payments
June 15 is the deadline for the second quarterly installment of estimated taxes for the 2021 tax year — the one for which your tax return is due in spring 2022. This deadline applies to the self-employed, who use IRS Form 1040-ES to pay this tax.
