2015 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday in Florida Starts Friday
By Lisa A. Davis
It’s that time of year again. Summer fun is winding down and back-to-school preparation is upon us and over the next few weeks schools will open their doors to the 2015-16 school year. Most parents have their children’s school supply list in hand. And it’s long. So long. Binders, pencils and glue sticks. Oh my! And let’s not forget lunch boxes, backpacks, school uniform, shoes and so much more. We cringe at what it will cost, but we look forward to that one important reprieve we get during this season: Florida’s 10-day Sales Tax Holiday.
This year’s holiday begins at 12:-01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 7 and runs through 11:59 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 16. And for this we are thankful. The lists of tax-free purchases includes most clothing priced under $100 per item such as fitness clothes, baseball cleats, blouses, book bags, barrettes, construction paper, calculators, highlighters and so much more.
Don’t forget this isn’t only available for students, adults can take advantage of it too from everything from work uniforms, hunting vest to pantyhose and diapers.
