Got some back-to-school shopping to do? Save a little cash during the Tax-Free Shopping Weekend, Friday, August 5 through Sunday, August 7. The Sales Tax Holiday exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales & use taxes — which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend.
All sales (of qualifying items) made during the holiday period qualify for the tax exemption, including items sold online, or by telephone or mail. Lay-away plans can be used again this year to take advantage of the sales tax holiday. There are some rules that apply, of course. Please click here to get ALL the details.
