Sales Tax Holiday Bill Heads to House Floor
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - There would be no sales tax on books, clothes, shoes, wallets, and bags costing 50 dollars or less, and certain other school supplies costing ten bucks or less, August fourth through the 13th
at most Florida stores under the bill (HB 215). The measure was approved unanimously by the House Budget and Policy Council. The proposal, which has already been passed by the Senate, goes next to the House floor. The bill exempts sales of items at theme parks, entertainment complexes, hotels and airports. Floridians have received the back-to-school sales tax break several times in the last decade, but lawmakers have to re-approve it each year.
