Tax-free weekend begins today.
A tax-free holiday weekend begins today to help parents deal with the costs of back to school season. There will be no sales tax on clothes, shoes and backpacks up to $60, school supplies up to $15, and computers up to $750. Last year the holiday expanded over a ten day stretch. This time around, it’s just three days, today through Sunday. Kids in St Lucie, Indian River, and Palm Beach counties go back to school on the 14th. Martin County students start on the 15th.
