Florida’s back-to-school sales tax holiday ends on August 6

Parents still have time to take advantage of Florida’s annual back-to-school sales tax holiday, which offers tax breaks on essential items such as school supplies, clothing, learning aids, electronics, and more.

The tax holiday began on July 24 and runs through Sunday, August 6. During the holiday, school supplies that cost $50 or less are exempt from sales taxes. Those items include, but are not limited to, pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, markers, notebooks, binders, poster board, lunch boxes, and calculators.

In addition, the tax holiday applies to clothing and footwear if the individual items are $100 or less.

Personal computers and certain computer-related accessories with a sales price of $1,500 or less are eligible for the tax breaks when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use.

Jigsaw puzzles and learning aids (flashcards, matching or other memory games, puzzle books, interactive toys teaching reading or math skills, stacking blocks, etc.) with a sales price of $30 or less are also exempt from sales taxes through August 6.
