Friday begins Florida's three-day back-to-school shopping holiday where the state waives sales taxes on many items.

The list includes clothing items priced under $100 apiece and school supplies priced under $15 apiece.

This year, the list also includes no taxes on the first $750 for electronics, including tablets, desktop computers and other accessories.

Most sporting goods items remain taxable, as do cell phones. Shoppers don't need to prove the items are for school, or children.
