Yes, Virginia, there is a Sales-Tax Free Holiday in Florida for back-to-school shoppers.
The annual tax-free sale on most clothing and school supplies starts Friday and ends Sunday. The so-called Florida Sales Tax Holiday is just in time for the new school year, making it a little easier on families as they buy new clothing and student supplies.
School supplies exempt from taxes include: Backpacks, pencils, crayons, rulers, composition books, construction paper, markers, erasers, scissors, notebooks, highlighters, lunch boxes and folders.
