This is the week to head to the stores and start buying all your back to school supplies....NO TAX this weekend!

This year's holiday runs Aug. 3-5, allowing consumers statewide to purchase clothing, footwear and certain accessories selling for $75 or less, and certain school supplies for $15 or less per item, with no sales tax or local option tax, according to the Florida Department of Revenue website.

Florida's general sales tax rate is 6 percent, according to the FDR. The tax exemption applies no matter how many items a consumer buys in one transaction.
