Florida parents, if you have a small child some relief is coming your way. Tax-free purchases of children’s necessities in Florida will start later this year.

Depending on the age of your child they can go through eight to twelve of these a day! What you may ask? Diapers. That can be almost $900 a year!

Now, some relief coming. The bill, which makes diapers and some other necessities tax-free, was approved earlier this year and the tax exemption kicks in on July 1, 2022.
