What's included in the upcoming Florida tax-free weekend? Does it only apply to back-to-school products?
Florida's tax-free weekend runs Aug. 13 to 15 and includes books, clothing and footwear selling for $50 or less along with certain school supplies selling for $10 or less.
But the tax-free benefit applies to more than just back-to-school items.
Alex Sink, the state's chief financial officer, says in a recent note to consumers that the tax-free weekend is "for anyone who wants to buy a shirt, a skirt, shoes or a raincoat (each item under $50) or any of the dozens of items on the state-approved tax-exempt list."
