Commissioner Zapata welcomes Governor Rick Scott to West Kendall (WeKe) to announce Florida's Tax Free Holiday weekend


Commissioner Juan C. Zapata invites District 11 residents and all media outlets to join Governor Rick Scott tomorrow July 31, 2013, for a press conference at 3:30 p.m. to announce the upcoming sales tax holiday scheduled for August 2-4, 2013. The press conference will be held at the Walmart Supercenter located at 15885 SW 88 Street in West Kendall (WeKe).

As parents and students prepare for the upcoming school year, they will once again have the opportunity to get more for their money during a three-day tax holiday. This year however the Legislature has extended sales tax exemptions to a number of technological learning tools that students will find useful in today’s learning environment.  Some of the new additions to exempt items include personal computers, e-readers, tablets, software and accessories costing up to $750. 

For more information, please contact Commissioner Zapata’s office at 305-375-5511.
