Florida Tax Free Weekend 2016

Florida Tax Free Weekend announced for August 2016.The Florida Sales Tax Holiday 2016 kicks off on Friday, August 5th, 2016 and will end Sunday August 7th, 2016.  Florida state officials recently voted to cut allowances on clothing, shoes, computers, and dates for Florida 2016 Sales Tax Holiday.

Tax Free Weekend 2016 Florida this weekend!  3-Day Back to School Sale, Ends Saturday

CLOTHING Up to $60 each. Florida legislators were a little more generous than years past. Garments and accessories are tax free up to $60 each. In 2013, the exemption stopped at $75 per piece.

SHOES Up to $60 per pair. Shoes are eligible for the tax exemption. As with clothing, however, only footwear costing less than $60 per pair will ring up tax-free.

Up to $15 each

Sales tax will not be charged on items such as pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, and glue. The state set a price limit of $15 per item for this category, but left off items such as staplers and computer paper.

Personal computers and computer accessories are no longer subject to Florida Sales Tax Holiday.


All books, besides the Bible, are still taxable during the Florida Sales Tax Holiday 2016.

But not all

Lawmakers love tourists, but they did not want to give visitors a tax break. So, sales tax will still apply to purchases made in theme parks, entertainment complexes, hotels, and airports.

To your door

Sales tax should not be charged on eligible items that are ordered online — even if those items are delivered after the sales tax holiday ends. See Walmart Sales Tax Holiday for general online tax free policies.


The state has no issue with you using coupons or taking advantage of buy-one-get-one-free sales during the sales tax holiday. Use this to your advantage and make the most of this great tax free savings event.

Retailers are increasingly competitive in the back-to-school period, so be on the lookout for bargains that are unlikely to repeat themselves during the school year.

* Florida’s House and Senate had the option to give us a full week of Florida tax-free back-to-school savings. But they decided against it. Tax Free Week 2016 Florida were all rumors.

    Ok, so they are only helping the poor people again…stupid liberals. My son’s feet are exceptionally flat, so I spend a few extra bucks 1-2 times a year to get him good shoes. So, because I save my money and buy him a good pair of $80 New Balance with the good arch support inserts I have to pay taxes, but the bitch with 10 kids that I pay for her groceries and housing doesn’t have to pay taxes? Why does it matter how much I’m going to spend on my children. It’s school clothes. Basically what they have done is taken away Florida’s school tax free weekend and just given poor people a new benefit. This really isn’t for everyone. I already know what people are going to comment as I could debate my own post, but I am tired and don’t feel like putting in 10 clauses to explain myself in enough detail to not get those trolling comments, so please just use half a brain cell and use some common sense when commenting.
