Parents are getting ready to send the kids back to school. It can be expensive but if you do your back to school shopping this weekend you’ll at least save money thanks to the Tax Free holiday.
The 2018 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday was passed by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by Governor Rick Scott. The sales tax holiday runs through Sunday, August 5.
During this sales tax holiday period, qualifying items will be exempt from tax including: certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item; and clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $60 or less per item.
For more information and a list of qualifying items, please review the Department of Revenue’s Tax Information Publication (TIP) on the 2018 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday.
