TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) — There’s good news for Florida shoppers before they send their kids off to school next fall.

Florida lawmakers are going to renew the state’s popular back-to-school sales tax holiday.

A Senate budget panel on Wednesday approved a tax cut package (HB 7087) that includes roughly $120 million worth of tax breaks.

The bill calls for a three-day sales tax holiday from Aug. 3 to Aug. 5.

During the holiday shoppers would not have to pay state or local sales taxes on clothing worth $75 or less or pay taxes on school supplies worth $15 or less.

The tax cut package also includes a top priority for Gov. Rick Scott. It increases the amount of money exempt from the state’s corporate income tax.

The legislation also includes a whole series of other tax breaks, including one that would benefit a proposed beef slaughterhouse in Marion County.

    Whatever the reason these printable coupons or “Printapons” exist and it is valid to use them, although it can skew the marketing research for which they were intended.
