FLORIDA TAX FREE WEEKEND IS AUGUST 2-4

Let's not forget that TAX FREE WEEKEND IS AUGUST 2-4 

What does that mean for us here in Florida?

2013 Sales Tax Holiday
List of taxable and tax-exempt items August 2 through August 4, 2013

The 2013 Florida Legislature passed and the Governor approved a tax-free period that states:
No sales tax shall be collected on the sale of clothing, wallets, or bags, including handbags, backpacks, fanny packs, and diaper bags, but excluding briefcases, suitcases, and other garment bags, having a sales price of $75 or less per item, on sales of certain school supplies having a sales price of $15 or less per item, or on sales of personal computers and certain related accessories having a sales price of $750 or less per item, for the period beginning 12:01 a.m. on August 2, 2013, and ending at 11:59 p.m. on August 4, 2013. “Clothing” means any article of wearing apparel, including all footwear (except skis, swim fins, roller blades, and skates), intended to be worn on or about the human body. However, “clothing” does not include watches, watch bands, jewelry, umbrellas, handkerchiefs, or sporting equipment.
