As we mentioned a few weeks ago, select Krispy Kreme locations in Central Florida are supporting The Salvation Army’s 2015 “Stuff the Bus” campaign, and there’s still time to participate during this week’s Florida Sales Tax Holiday.
While you’re out and about purchasing school supplies for your family, pick up a couple of extra. Then take them to a participating Krispy Kreme location.
One of the best times of the year to shop, especially for back-to-school items, is the annual Florida Sales Tax Holiday. During this time, sales tax is waived on select items. For 2013, the holiday runs August 2 through 4.
Items that may be purchased without sales tax are:
Certain clothing accessories
Certain school supplies
Personal computers and certain related accessories (new for 2013!)
During this weekend, sales of clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $75 or less per item, on certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item, and on personal computers and certain related accessories selling for $750 or less per item, when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use.
This three-day tax holiday is in effect from 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 2, 2013, through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, August 4, 2013.

Also keep an eye out for great sales at Orlando-area stores this weekend, and multiply your savings!
Just in time for back-to-school shopping, the state of Florida will be holding a sales tax holiday from August 12-14, 2011.
During this time period, select purchases will not be charged a sales tax. Clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $75 or less will be tax-exempt, as will certain school supplies selling for $15 or less.
