Here at KB Staffing, we like to help our clients and our Central Florida workforce save as much of their hard-earned income as they can. That’s why we want to make sure you and your families are taking advantage of the extended sales tax holiday. If you follow us on Facebook, then you might have seen our “Money Tips” post, where we reveal that setting aside loose change— as little as .50 cents per day— can add up to almost $200 dollars by the end of the year! So you see, saving those nickels and dimes during the sales tax holiday is just another way to help make sure those pennies add up.
This year, the Florida Legislature extended the length of the tax break for back-to-school shoppers to a full ten days, which started on Friday, August 7 and ends on Sunday, August 16, 2015.
You might be asking yourself why we would go through the trouble to make sure our clients and temporary employees know about these dates, but the answer is very simple: we just want to help others, much the same way that we help our clients find temporary staffing solutions for their businesses.
One very important thing to note is that there are certain rules on what is tax-free during this time frame and what is not. All clothes less than $100, school supplies less than $15, and the first $750 of a personal computer and other technology items are tax-free. We also found an article published by the Miami Herald, which sites 10 ways you can take full advantage of the sales tax break. We hope you’re able to pocket some of that change during your back-to-school shopping, and we also wish you and your families a safe and productive school year!
