No Back to School Tax Break

If you were waiting for the ten day sales tax holiday to shop for school and hurricane supplies, forget it. Florida lawmakers have chopped the popular event that saved consumers a whopping $41 million during the 2007 tax holiday.

Almost all of the state’s money comes from sales tax and this year the state just cannot afford the holiday for residents. Expect retailers to advertise sharp discounts to get consumers into their stores to attract more shoppers.

Watch the ads, shop with a list and look for items on clearance racks to get your best deals.
