JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tax free weekend is in full swing in Florida. Shoppers in Florida have the chance to participate in tax-free shopping as they prepare for their kids to go back to school.
Florida's 2013 sales tax holiday runs Aug. 2-4.
During the three-day period, clothing, footwear and certain other accessories priced under $75 will not be taxed. Sales taxes on school supplies selling for $15 or less and computers with a price tag under $750 will also not be collected.
Georgia's sales tax holiday is set for Aug. 9 and 10.
And just like in Florida, there are limits.
Shoes and clothing cannot cost more than $100. Computers must sell for below $1,000. All school supplies costing $20 or less will be included in the tax-free holiday.
At least 17 states have tax-free periods planned this year, mostly for spending on school items.
