Another tax break opportunity
is upon us! Get ready to stock up on all of your back to school supplies,
office supplies and clothes for fall because the state is forgiving the tax for
one weekend only! The annual tax-free holiday will begin on Friday, August 3
rdand run through Sunday, August 5th! Shop for the whole household and see the savings add up!
The typical August back to school rush includes shopping for all necessary
school supplies (lists are supplied by the school or can be found online or
even in some stores), new clothes for the new school year and items such as
backpacks, lunch boxes and non-perishable snacks and drinks for on the go or
after school!  Combine the extreme sales
stores have this time of year with the tax savings and you will be WOWED!  Publix and Winn Dixie offer many Buy One Get
One Free (BOGO) deals on essentials such as pens and pencils, highlighters,
markers, crayons, folders, notebooks and more! Stock up for the entire year and if you’re able- grab some extras to donate to the many school supply drives throughout the area. As far as tax free clothing, check out the list in the link below as to what qualifies and up to what price.
