August Sales Tax Holiday: School Supplies and Clothing
When: First full weekend of August (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) each year. This year the holiday will take place August 1-3, 2014.
What's Exempt: During this three-day period, purchases of qualifying school supplies selling for $20 or less per item, and purchases of qualifying clothing and footwear selling for $100 or less per item will be exempt from sales tax. Retailers may also choose to absorb the tax on other items during the holiday period, but they are responsible for paying the tax on those items to the Department of Taxation.
