Get ready for back-to-school sales tax holiday Friday

The back-to-school sales tax holiday in Florida is Friday, but the deals have already begun.

We took a look at what the prices are like Wednesday, as you get ready for the new school year.

We hit the stores and did some shopping. When it comes to 24-count, Crayola crayons, you’ll pay 50 cents at Walmart, Target and Staples.

A 10-pack of markers is under a $1 and just pennies apart between stores. All three stores mentioned offered notebooks for under $1.

Once Friday comes around, you won’t have to pay sales tax on those supplies under $15. Clothing under $60 is also exempt, and computers and some accessories are also tax free for the first $1,000.
