MIAMI, Florida – It’s that time of year again! Florida shoppers will have a “tax-free holiday” in anticipation of the new school year.
This year’s sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 2, 2019, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6, 2019.
No Florida sales tax or local option tax will be collected during this time on the following:
- Clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $60 or less per item, and
- Certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item
- Certain personal computers or related accessories costing $1,000 or less per item, cell phones excluded
The 2019 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday was passed by the Florida Legislature earlier this year and signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis.
