Tax Free Shopping

In addition to saving money on product categories during specific months, 15 participating states have tax-free holidays that will allow you to purchase back to school items without paying additional taxes. However, be aware that there are specific restrictions on those holidays.

For instance, the majority of states limit the tax benefit to clothing purchases up to $100. If you live in a state like Missouri, you can get solid tax savings on the purchase of a new computer due to the large $1,500 allowance. Check out the full list of restrictions below as well as a map of all participating states, the dates of the holiday and links to all tax agencies for further review.
