Back to school sales tax holiday

WEST PALM BEACH - The popular back to school tax break holiday in Florida starts on Friday.

The tax break kicks off at 12:01 a.m Friday and lasts just three days, until midnight Sunday.

While the tax break is timed to help parents save on back-to-school purchases, it's not restricted to items for kids. It applies to all clothes, shoes, certain accessories and books selling for $50 or less.

It's also good on certain school supplies that cost $10 or less.  It doesn't matter how many items you buy, as long as each one falls under the limit.
