So…. In Florida they have this thing called “tax free school shopping”. Sounds neat right? No taxes on school supplies, clothing, bags, back packs etc… that even includes adult clothing. WOW, I think to myself; I totally want in on this deal, where do I sign up?
Well… this year is has been shortened from 10 days, during previous years, to just 3 days, Friday Saturday & Sunday. You can shop anywhere, including online & pay no taxes on anything that could be school supplies. Oh, I almost forgot, they have also disallowed computers & tablets this year.
My point? I see this quickly turning into the “black Friday” of school shopping. I’ve heard several people say that they start their shopping late Thursday night at Walmart & check out just after midnight to avoid paying the taxes. Crazy, right? This weekend I have decided to give this a shot; I just hope that there are school supplies left by the time we get around to the stores.
I better wrap this post up & start finalizing my list of everything that we need. We need to hit the stores with a plan tomorrow morning. 😉
Good luck to all of my fellow Florida school shoppers tomorrow!!!
My name is Melissa & I am a new Florida resident. Yes, we have purchased our Walt Disney World annual passes & have been to the parks every weekend. If you would like to plan a Florida vacation or cruise, send me an email. I like to think my full time job is the “director of development” for 2 growing boys. But I also have a part time job as a travel agent.
