THE WAVE F L O R I D A C R E D I T U N I O N J U L Y 2 0 2 1 Back-to-school savings just became sweeter! Florida’s 2021 Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday has been extended to 10 days, from July 31 until August 9. In 2020, the tax holiday was three days long, so the extension provides Florida families with wonderful opportunities for savings heading into the 2021-2022 school year, especially for those returning to in-person learning following the COVID-19 pandemic. The special savings apply to: • $15 or less (per item): School supplies • $60 or less (per item): Clothing, footwear and backpacks • The first $1,000 of the sales tax price: personal computers or personal computer-related accessories The 10-Day Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday! Source: It may be mid-summer, but back-to-school preparations are in full-swing at Florida Credit Union! Designed to support our region’s educators and students, FCU branches will be accepting donations for schools in the counties we serve during our school supply drive. If you are interested in participating, whether you would like to contribute anything from office supplies to backpacks, information will be forthcoming on opportunities for drop-offs in our branches this summer. Collecting school supplies is not all we do at FCU to support our area’s educators! Annually, FCU sponsors back-to-school programs for about 90 local schools to show our appreciation for all that school administration, teachers and staff do for our students and communities.
