Another of the state’s tax breaks for consumers is coming up as we approach the Fall semester.

There are a few items of clothing or accessories that are surprisingly on the list that qualify for the tax exemption.


The back-to-school tax holiday runs from July 31, 2021 until August 9, 2021, a 10 day span for the annual event. The Florida Department of Revenue has given the tax break on:

• Rentals or leases of any eligible items;
• Repairs or alterations of any eligible items; or
• Sales of any eligible items in a theme park, entertainment complex, public lodging establishment, or airport.
