This Weekend's Tax Holiday is for More Than School Supplies

Do's and Don'ts: WI sales tax holiday Expert talks savings on Iowa Tax Free Weekend
Conrad Doyle | 03 August, 2018, 00:26

"I object to limiting the sales tax holiday to only two days, which may deny hardworking taxpayers with children the chance to take advantage of this sales tax holiday", Walker wrote at the time as part of his veto message.

Shoppers across the state are expected to hit the stores Friday and Saturday during Iowa's Tax Free Weekend.

As South Carolina prepares for its annual Sales Tax Holiday Weekend, North Carolina goes on its fifth year without the back-to-school shopping option.

This year's holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Aug 3 and ends at 11:59 p.m. August 5.

School instructional material priced at $20 per item or less. For example, if a retailer sells a computer during the sales tax holiday for $2,000 and also charges $55 to deliver the computer, then the entire charge of $2,055 is exempt from the sales or use tax.

Over the weekend, people across the state of MS hit the racks for Tax Free Weekend.

State officials estimate the sales tax holiday will reduce state revenue by up to $16.9 million in 2020. This year the state sales tax rate is 4.45 percent.

But all three of Louisiana's neighbors have back-to-school holidays in place this year.

For clothing, the price of the item must be $75 or under.

For exact details on what items will be covered by the exemption please use the links provided on this page. There is no limit to how many items can be purchased during the tax-free weekend. We did see a lot more influx of that market.
