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.
