During these times, saving every dollar is a good idea. And an excellent exercise in economy is to save the sales tax on items you were going to purchase, anyway.

Many states offer Sales Tax Holidays – typically calling them Back-To-School Sales Tax Holidays – and generally schedule them in August.

Of course, the states differ in their implementation. But it is not uncommon to find exemptions
from sales tax on the following items purchased during these periods.

  • Clothing

  • Footwear

  • Computers

  • School supplies

To see if your state participates, just click the following links.
