Plan Could Extend Sales Tax Holiday

TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) – Parents’ beloved sales-tax holiday could soon be extended, potentially lasting all year.

A proposal introduced to the state legislature would Internet purchases made through Amazon, eBay or any other large out-of-state Internet-based retailer to make that possible.

Here’s how the plan would work: tax-free shopping on clothing and school items would begin the first Friday of August. How long the sales tax holiday lasts would depend on the amount of Internet tax revenue collected through the plan.

The idea is part of a committee bill sent from the House Finance and Tax Committee on Thursday to the House Speakers’ Office.
