Baby diapers will soon be tax-free

Parents soon won’t have to pay sales tax to keep their babies fresh and clean, as Gov. Ron DeSantis’ stroke of a pen Friday delivered tax relief on baby diapers and a host of other items.

The sweeping tax relief package DeSantis signed Friday will save Floridians an estimated $1.1 billion in taxes. Baby diapers will be exempted from the sales tax starting July 1.

Babies use more than 2,700 diapers per year, according to numbers from Investopedia. Disposable diapers can cost new parents nearly $120 per month for diapers and wipes.

DeSantis said he signed the bill to combat inflation.
