Florida Gov. Rick Scott unveiled a proposed 10-day back-to-school sales tax holiday Friday.
The proposal, detailed in Scott’s “It’s Your Money Tax Cut Budget” presentation, estimates that Sunshine State families will save almost $60 million during the 10-day holiday, according to a statement issued by Scott’s office.
“I’m excited to announce that we will work to create another back-to-school sales tax holiday this year, as part of our ‘It’s Your Money Tax Cut Budget.’” Scott said in the statement. “Florida families will be able to buy normal school supplies like pens, pencils and paper, as well as computers and clothes without paying state or local sales tax on it. By creating this holiday, we’ll help Floridians keep more of their money, while helping prepare every Florida student for another school year.”
Tax-free items will include “clothing priced less than $100 (including footwear), back-to-school items less than $15 (pens, pencils, notebooks, etc.), and computers and computer equipment less than $750,” according to the statement.
