Your guide to tax-free weekend

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Florida's tax-free holiday for school supplies is back.

The event starts Friday at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday at midnight. Retailers are planning to bring in extra staff to handle large crowds.

This year, some new items are on the tax-free list, including computers and tablets.

School supplies can add up. The National Retail Federation expects families with school-aged children will spend more than $600 this year on shoes, clothes and supplies.

The exemption does not apply to any item of clothing selling for more than $75, to any school supply items selling for more than $15, or to any personal computer or related accessory selling for more than $750.

Tax free holiday does not include cellular telephones, video game consoles, digital media receivers, or devices that are not primarily designed to process data.
