Florida, Massachusetts and Maryland are the latest states to hold back-to-school sales tax savings events.
Florida's tax holiday began Friday, Aug. 12, and runs through Sunday, Aug. 14. Shoppers will get a tax break on articles of clothing costing $75 or less and school supplies of $15 or less.
Head up Interstate 95 and you'll find sales tax holidays on tap in Maryland and Massachusetts.
Massachusetts' tax-free sales event starts Saturday, Aug. 13 and wraps up at midnight Sunday, Aug. 14. It's not a long tax holiday, but it's a generous one. Most items costing less than $2,500 are tax free.
Maryland shoppers will get a week of tax savings. The Old Line State's sales tax holiday begins Sunday, Aug. 14, and runs through next Saturday, Aug. 20. But tax savings only apply to clothing and footwear costing $100 or less.
There are, of course, some other limits and rules, so be sure to check with each state's tax department before you head out to your favorite store.
