Back-To-School Shoppers Get Tax Break This Weekend

Back-To-School Shoppers Get Tax Break This Weekend
Posted August 1st, 2014 @ 12:05pm

Florida's 2014 sales tax holiday began Friday, August 1st and runs through Sunday, August 3rd.


With the new school year approaching, parents and students can save money on their back-to-school shopping this weekend.


The three-day event was approved by the Florida Legislature and signed by the governor earlier this year.


The holiday exempts certain items from sales tax, including clothing and shoes under $100 and certain school supplies that are less than $15 per item.


In addition, computers and certain electronics under $750 are also tax-exempt during the holiday.


The Florida Retail Federation expects a successful weekend for stores throughout the state and a spokesman anticipates there will be many additional sales to draw in consumers.
