Sales Tax Holiday is On

Sales Tax Holiday is On

Florida's Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday is now underway. 

Until midnight, Sunday night, you won't pay tax on the purchase of clothing, accessories and shoes, along with school supplies.  

If you're in the market for a new computer, you will also save on sales tax, up to the fist $750 of the purchase price, if the computer is not for business purposes. 

Many stores will hold sales to bring customers in, so expect it to be busy this weekend.

Here is more information from the Florida Dept. of Revenue:

During this holiday period, Florida law directs that no sales tax or local option tax (also known as discretionary sales surtax) will be collected on purchases of:

Clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for
$100 or less per item,

Certain school supplies selling for
$15 or less per item, and

Personal computers and certain computer-related accessories on the
first $750 of the sales price, when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use.
