Sales tax holiday is more than back-to-school items

Sales tax holiday is more than back-to-school items

That includes clothing, shoes, school supplies and some electronics. Combining the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday with our $100-Per-Child Tax Rebate can help families across Wisconsin offset some of those costs.

Parents will also save tax on certain school supplies if each item is $15 or less.

North Carolina did have a sales-tax holiday shopping weekend from 2002 until 2013, when the state Legislature under then-Gov.

South Carolina, however, has continued with the annual weekend since it started in the early 2000s - and now it attracts many shoppers from North Carolina.

The sales tax holiday weekend in Florida runs August 3-5, 2018.

Wisconsin's five-day sales tax holiday is about to begin.

Back-to-school shopping gets a little less expensive this weekend with the opening of Ohio's sales tax free holiday window.

Democrats have decried the holiday as an election-year gimmick. Some cities may continue to charge their share of sales taxes but Independence is not one of them.

What neighboring states still hold tax free holidays?

According to the South Carolina Department of Revenue, its estimated between $2 million and $3 million were saved by shoppers during the holiday weekend. "It's also big because it's right before fair, so everybody is wanting to rush in and get their back to school shopping finished".

"The people of OH deserve to keep more of the money they earn so that they can more easily provide these essentials for their families", said McColley.
