It’s that time of year again! Florida shoppers will have a “tax-free holiday” in anticipation of the new school year. This year’s sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 2, 2019, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6, 2019.
No Florida sales tax or local option tax will be collected during this time on the following:
• Clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $60 or less per item, and
• Certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item
• Certain personal computers or related accessories costing $1,000 or less per item, cell phones excluded
Miami-Dade School Board Chair Perla Tabares Hantman’s proposal to promote this holiday to families was unanimously agreed upon by her School Board colleagues at their April 2019 meeting.
