Jimmy Patronis: Floridians Should Take Advantage of Two Week Back to School Sales Tax Holiday

At the end of last week, state Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis called on Floridians to use the 2022 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday, beginning Monday, July 25, 2022, and extending through Sunday, August 7, 2022 to save money on school supplies.

“The 2022 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday starts Monday. I encourage Florida families to take full advantage of the back-to-school sales tax holiday to stock up on new school clothes and supplies,” Patronis said.

“ Getting ready for the school year can be an expensive time for Floridians, especially with inflation at record highs, and this tax break will help families keep a little extra money in their pockets and ensure their children have all the supplies they need to succeed this school year. Make sure to take advantage of this back-to-school savings while you can!” he added.

During this sales tax holiday, qualifying items will be tax-free, including certain school supplies selling for $50 or less per item; clothing selling for $100 or less per item; and the first $1,500 of the sales price of personal computers and certain computer-related accessories purchased for noncommercial home or personal use. Additionally, Monday is the beginning of a one-year sales tax exemption on baby and toddler clothes, shoes, and children’s diapers.
