TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) — Back-to-school shoppers may be getting three days of tax free shopping in August.
The Senate on Thursday included the back-to-school tax holiday in a $105 million tax cut package that legislators plan to pass this week. The back-to-school sales tax holiday would last from Aug. 1-3.
Under the bill (HB 5601), shoppers would not have to pay sales taxes on any clothes worth $100 or less. Shoppers would not have to pay taxes on school supplies worth $15 or less or on the first $750 of a personal computer.
The bill also includes a three-day sales tax holiday in September on the purchase of energy efficient appliances. It also includes a nine-day sales tax holiday on the sale of hurricane preparation supplies such as batteries and generators.
