This weekend is one many Florida shoppers and retailers look forward to all year. This year’s back-to-school sales tax holiday applies to more expensive items than last year’s did.
School supplies, clothes, computers and computer accessories qualify for tax-free shopping all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This year, shoppers can get out of stores with $100 worth of clothes and $750 worth of computers without paying a penny of tax.
Florida Retail Federation spokesman John Fleming says back to school shopping brings in $5 billion statewide.
