Orlando, Fl – Tax Free Weekend and Restaurant Week
Tax Free Weekend and Restaurant Week in Orlando, FL
Starting today Florida hosts their annual Tax Free Weekend in Orlando, FL, a sales tax break to those getting ready for school and all the expenses that come with school supplies and clothes.
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.
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.
