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.

Just get your actually amounts to your supposed salary. You go to the store and purchase actually rings up as the amount on the receipts. You buy a used/second-hand costs the amount on the ticket. Cam you say FAIRTAX?
