TAMPA, FL (WFLA) — Florida shoppers should be reminded that a three-day back-to-school tax holiday is right around the corner!
Shoppers won’t pay sales tax on clothes worth $60 or less and on school supplies worth $15 or less.The tax holiday runs Aug. 5 through Aug. 7.
This year, computers are eliminated from the tax break and the value of clothes that can be purchased tax free is reduced. The changes were made by the Florida Legislature this year. Legislators scaled back this year’s tax holiday. Last year, shoppers also got a 10-day holiday.
