Are you looking to start your back-to-school shopping? Mark your calendars for Florida’s tax holiday, which occurs Aug. 2-6.
Tax-exempt items include:
• Clothing, shoes and backpacks that are $60 or less.
• School supplies under $15 such as pencils, notebooks and paper.
• Electronic devices such as tablets, computers and their accessories under $1,000.
The sales tax holiday is not mandatory, so double-check that your favorite stores are participating before you fill your cart. School-supply shopping lists may also be available at the stores, but you can usually find customized lists on your school’s website.
