Back to School Sales Tax Holiday FLPalmBeach Martin Group 1000x500

School Sales Tax Holiday Begins July 25, 2022

Florida’s back to school sales tax holiday begins Monday, July 25, 2022, which means shoppers won’t pay sales tax on most of the things found on a student’s supply list! Sales Tax Holiday ends August 7, 2022.

The start of another school year is not far away. School begins in Palm Beach County on August 10, 2022.  As parents and students get ready, a sales tax holiday is kicking in. The holiday is part of a broader $800 million tax package that Gov. Ron DeSantis signed in May.

Florida families are expected to save about $100 million between July 25th to Aug. 7th, according to the research group Florida TaxWatch.

What is Tax Free

During the sales tax holiday period, tax is not due on the retail sale of:

  • Clothing, footwear, and certain accessories with a sales price of $100 or less per item*
  • Certain school supplies with a sales price of $50 or less per item
  • Learning aids and jigsaw puzzles with a sales price of $30 or less*
  • Personal computers and certain computer-related accessories with a sales price of $1,500 or less, when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use
 

What is NOT Tax Free

This sales tax holiday does not apply to:

  • Any item of clothing with a sales price of more than $100
  • Any school supply item with a sales price of more than $50
  • Books that are not otherwise exempt
  • Computers and computer-related accessories with a sales price of more than $1,500
  • Computers and computer-related accessories purchased for commercial purposes
  • Rentals of any eligible items
  • Repairs or alterations of any eligible items
  • Sales of any eligible items within a theme park, entertainment complex, public lodging establishment or airport
 

Other Tax Free Information

Local families can download the Walmart app, find their student’s school and find the supplies list for an easy shopping experience! Just type in the child’s school city, state or zip code and the name of the school.

The School Sales Tax Holiday kicks off Monday July 25th, giving students and parents a chance at sales tax-free purchases on school and student clothing and supplies through August 7th in Florida.

The sales tax holiday is a limited time period where Florida allows you to make purchases of qualified items during its sales tax holiday and you will not be charged sales tax on the purchases. 

Passed by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis, the sales tax holiday begins today, Monday, July 25th and extends through Sunday, August 7 for this year, 2022.

The retail sale of children’s books (children ages 12 or younger), regardless of the sales price, is exempt during the period May 14, 2022 through August 14, 2022.
