If you’re going to be starting school for the first time in Florida, you should be aware of Florida’s sales tax holiday. It’s a fantastic way for Florida residents to stock up on school supplies and clothes without paying sales tax! This year, on August 3 through August 5, all state sales tax is waived on all most school supplies and many items of clothing.
Sales Tax Holiday Covered Clothing
Many items of clothing and accessories will be sales tax free during the Sales Tax Holiday. Make sure your clothing and accessory items cost less than $60 per item. Keep in mind you can’t take an average of buy-one-get-one-free sales prices for to stay under the $60 per item limit either. Tax-free items will include, backpacks, bathing suits, belts, coats, dresses, gloves, hats, leggings, shorts and sweaters. Accessory items like wallets, purses, fanny packs and backpacks will also be tax free if they are under $60 per item. Plus, some footwear like baseball cleats and rain boots under $60 will be tax free too!
Sales Tax Holiday Covered School Supplies
Many school supplies are also going to be tax free. Unlike last year though, computers aren’t on the list. You will be able to get supplies like compasses, pens, notebooks, folders, glue, binders and more. The only catch is that these items must be under $15 to qualify and some items like staplers aren’t included. If you can find a nice calculator for under $15, that will be tax free though!
