Saving Money Tip:  Florida Tax Free Shopping Returns August 3-5, 2012

Saving Money with Tax free holiday by silvia DukesJust in time for school start, Floridians will be able to save a bit of money when shopping for clothing and shoes.  During this tax free shopping "holiday", state sales tax will not be collected on these items as long as they cost $75 or less. 

Some basic school supplies are also included in the tax-holiday sale.  These include pencils, pens, notebooks and  paper, markers and other things.  Not included are books.  

If you like to plan ahead for your shopping trips next weekend and want to know what items fall under the tax free sales and which ones do not, you can check the full list at the website of the Florida Department of Revenue.

Many stores in Hernando County, Florida, will participate in the tax holidays.  It's not only a great way to get all the school supplies and clothing for the upcoming school year but also to just shop for something new to wear for any occasion.  The Florida tax free shopping holiday will benefit both stores and consumers.

Gretchen, here in Florida we don't have income tax so much of our revenue comes from property and sales taxes.  I agree with you about having to add the tax to the purchase price to arrive at the true cost.  Having it included in the price already makes it much easier to calculate and potentially budget if you want to pay cash and have a limited amount on you.

Alexandra, let's look at it as a temporary tax cut! Debbie, that is so true, by time you buy clothing and all the school supplies, you can spend a good amount. Lou, thanks! Morgan, you are right, everybody loves a bargain! Joan, hard to believe, but it's almost that time again!
