If you are a military veteran, you can purchase merchandise sales-tax free beginning this Veterans Day, November 11, 2017. This is not a one-day benefit. It is a lifetime benefit! Florida sales tax is 6% so you could save a bundle over time. Eligible shoppers include honorably discharged veterans, active military, Reserves, Guard, spouses and family members.
The benefit is offered through the online shopping service, www.shopmyexchange.com. Items available for purchase are similar to what you would find at most department stores and include clothing, furniture, electronics, jewelry, sports equipment, etc. In order to qualify to begin making tax-free purchases from the site, you must first be verified. You can start the verification process by visiting www.vetverify.org.
