No need to stop shopping! What was once just a weekend event is now seven days of savings. This year Florida’s Sales Tax Holiday continues through August 16th with no sales tax being collected on hurricane preparedness items, plus a variety of school related purchases including:
• Clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $100 or less per item
• Certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item
• Personal computers and some computer-related accessories on the first $750 of the sales price when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use.
The sales tax savings combined with current promotional sales at local stores on the qualifying items can mean big savings.
