2015 Florida Sales Tax Holiday!

With school starting in just a few weeks it’s once again No Sales Tax time in Florida! You have to love this time of the year. Even though it means shelling out money for school supplies, uniforms and such, it’s also a great time to take advantage of buying some new clothes and even a personal computer. Starting this weekend Friday, August 7th and running all week-long through Sunday, August 16th, most of your back to school purchases will be exempt from State taxes on the following items: Clothing and footwear under $100, school supplies under $15, certain clothing accessories, and electronics like personal computers are also included in the no sales tax holiday!

​Legislation was passed (Chapter 2015-221, Section 28, Laws of Florida) to create a 10-day sales tax holiday that will begin at 12:01 a.m., Friday, August 7, 2015, and end at 11:59 p.m., Sunday, August 16, 2015. During this period, no Florida sales tax or local option tax will be collected on sales of clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $100 or less per item, on certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item, and on the first $750 of the sales price for computers and certain computer-related accessories when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use.

Did you know that all year round in Florida youth bicycle helmets, child restraint systems and booster seats are tax exempt? The safety of our children is an important priority for our State!!

  • Sales taxes are disproportionately impactful to the poor. This is a life-impacting deal for working-poor families, especially families with multiple school-aged children. Thanks for sharing this info, I had not heard about States doing this.

      We used to only get 2 or 3 days. This is the first year they extended it to 10 days! I’m excited about it because it means I can go during non peak hours.
