The State of Florida will provide sales tax exemptions on clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $75 or less, or on certain school supplies selling for $15 or less.
"This is a great opportunity for shoppers to take advantage and save even more while they shop for all of their back to school essentials. Many stores are also hosting sales and providing special offers to entice shoppers in addition to the sales tax discount,"? said Dana Katterjohn, regional marketing director for CBL & Associates Properties.
