Florida Tax Free Weekend announced for August 2016. The Florida Sales Tax Holiday 2016 kicks off on Friday, August 5th, 2016 at 12:01 a.m. and will end Sunday August 7th, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. Florida state officials recentlyvoted to cut allowances on clothing, shoes, computers, and dates for Florida 2016 Sales Tax Holiday.
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.
SCHOOL SUPPLIES 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.
MOST STORES 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.
INTERNET ORDERS 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. SeeAmazon Sales Tax Holidayfor general online tax free policies.
MAXIMIZE SAVINGS DURING SALES TAX HOLIDAYS
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.

"Margarita Zhemukhova very quickly found us the property we were looking for at a price we could afford. In working with her we found her to be always available to meet, very prompt in returning e-mails and phone calls (within minutes), pro-active in altering us to the next steps in closing and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone needing real estate services.
