MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Parents and future students getting ready for the upcoming school year can stock up without breaking the bank thanks to the back-to-school sales tax holiday this weekend.
The holiday started Friday, August 1st and lasts through Sunday, August 3rd.
During the sales tax-free holiday, shoppers do not pay sales taxes on any clothes and shoes worth $100 or less, school supplies worth $15 or less or on the first $750 of a personal computer.
Another tax break for families took effect July 1, 2014. Youth bicycle helmets, child restraint systems and booster seats are now tax-exempt and will provide additional relief for families purchasing these child safety items.
