What You Need To Know: Tax Free Holiday

 
Posted July 31st, 2014 @ 11:19am


The Florida sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 1, 2014, and ends at midnight on Sunday, August 3, 2014.

During this period, no Florida sales tax or local option tax will be collected on sales of clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $100 or less per item – this is an increase from $75 or less per item in 2013.

In addition, no tax will be collected 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.

Items qualifying as back-to-school that are purchased online will also be tax-free.

A few things NOT tax free are briefcases, suitcases, garment bags, cellular phones, video game consoles, digital media receivers, televisions, and any devices that are not primarily designed to process data are NOT tax exempt during the holiday period.
