Florida's 10-day back-to-school sales tax holiday starts early Friday morning


TALLAHASSEE, Florida — Florida's back-to-school sales tax holiday is kicking off and this time it's going to last longer.

Starting early Friday morning shoppers do not have to pay state and local sales taxes on clothing worth $100 or less. Sales taxes are also waived for school supplies worth $15 or less. The tax break is not allowed at theme parks.

Shoppers also do not have to pay the state's 6 percent sales tax on the first $750 of any computer purchase. The exemption also applies to computer accessories.

The sales tax holiday starts at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and ends on Aug. 16.

This year state legislators extended the length of the tax holiday. This means that shoppers will be able to take advantage of the tax break over two weekends.
