LABELLE, FL. -- As the calendar rolls into August, Floridians are reminded that there is a new school year right around the corner. Florida law makers are encouraging parents, guardians and community members to make sure that Florida’s students start the year off right by taking advantage of the 2015 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday August 7 - 16.
Due to the success of recent sales tax holidays, the tax-free holiday has been extended from its original three day period to ten full days of tax free shopping. During this period, no Florida sales tax will be collected on sales of clothing, footwear, and certain accessories with a selling price of $100 or less per item, on certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item, and on the first $750 of the sales price for computers and certain computer-related accessories when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use.
