Tax-Free Holiday Shopping

By | August 5, 2011

There are a number of states offering a state tax-free holiday this weekend including (according to Wikipedia) Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Tennessee.  You’ll want to confirm with your state department of taxation the exact dates and what types of items that are exempt.

That means this is a great time to do some shopping, particularly for larger items like computers, TVs, and furniture.  Major retailers should be adjusting your total at checkout to remove the state sales tax — be sure before you check out!
