Tax-Free Weekend offers opportunity to save while shopping
Tax-Free Weekend, August 8-10, is a chance to stock up on school supplies and clothing for kids for Back to School. All sales of qualifying items made during the holiday period qualify for exemption, including items sold online, or by telephone or mail. Some retailers also offer layaway plans that can be used to take advantage of the sales tax holiday.
As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear and school supplies from sales and use taxes, which could yield substantial savings.
