As summer comes to an end, it is time to start thinking of getting back to school and shopping for school supplies. Mark your calendars for this year's Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday and take advantage of some savings. 

During this tax free holiday period, from August 7th to August 16th, Florida law allows for no sales tax to be collected on the purchase of:

  • Certain school supplies for $15 or less per item, 
  • Clothing, certain accessories, and footwear selling for $100 or less per item, and 
  • Computers for personal use and/or certain computer-related accessories on the first $750 of the sales price.
Before filling up your cart, be sure to check the full and detailed list of tax exempt items at: http://dor.myflorida.com/dor/tips/pdf/tip15a01-05_full_list.pdf
