Supplies that will be tax-free during this time include clothing, bags, computers, shoes and other school supplies.

He continued: “Please accept this payment as a form of gratitude and acknowledgment for all that you do to help nurture Florida’s future. God bless you, and God bless the great state of Florida.”
