During this holiday period, Florida law directs that no sales tax or local option tax (also known as discretionary sales surtax) will be collected on purchases of:

  • Clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $100 or less per item (adult and children’s sizes)
  • Certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item
  • Personal computers and certain computer-related accessories on the first $750 of the sales price, when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use

Of course, there are always exemptions, and if you have any questions, or want more information on the sales tax holiday, visit myflorida.com/dor.
