Back to School Sales Tax Holiday

Back to School Sales Tax Holiday

Parents may in fact get a sales tax holiday on back to school shopping this summer, but it may be a lot shorter than what the governor wanted. 

Rick Scott proposed a ten day holiday period in early August, during which no sales tax would be imposed on items like clothing, school supplies and certain personal computers and related accessories. 

A state Senate committee this week supported the measure, but for only three days.
