Back to School Tax Free Weekend


back to school tax free sale

Ocala, Florida — With the start of school just weeks away, Ocala Post wants to encourage you to take advantage of this weekend’s Back to School Sales Tax Holiday.

Beginning Friday, August 1, 2014, and ending Sunday, August 3, 2014, items such as clothing, footwear, backpacks, and more are exempt from the state sales tax and county discretionary sales surtaxes.


Florida lawmakers approved the holiday as a way to help families save on the cost of the many items needed by students as they return to school, but you don’t have to be a student to enjoy these savings.

And don’t forget, Symphony Healthcare, Inc., located at 202 SW 17th Street, Suite A, Ocala, is now offering back to school and sports physicals for $25.00.

Patients must be at least 12-years-old.

Mention this article to receive $5.00 off or print.

Call to schedule your appointment today, 352-629-5939. To learn more about Symphony Healthcare, Inc. visit
