Iowa Sales Tax Holiday set for August 3-4


Ohioans who shop online will have to place their order during the tax-free weekend period.

The sales tax was waived on purchases of clothing and school supplies of less than one-hundred dollars and on computers less than 15-hundred dollars.

Early proposals this year in the Legislature would have offered a 10-day holiday, as requested by Gov. Rick Scott, with taxes lifted on the first $1,000 of the cost of personal computers and related accessories. Items can not be put on layaway and paid for later tax-free.

Computers up to $750 and tablets and software up to $250 are also tax free. You can find that list on Missouri's Tax Holiday website. Stocking up on new clothing, computers, electronics and even basic school supplies can swiftly add up, with household spending for children in grades K-12 expected to reach almost $28 billion nationwide this year, according to a recent Deloitte survey.

The holiday this year is projected to save shoppers $32.7 million, reducing state revenue by $26 million and local-government revenue by $6.7 million.

Qualifying items in Oklahoma include clothing and shoes under $100.

Wisconsin is joining several other states across the country in taking part in a sales tax holiday this year. He also encouraged people to look at the Chamber and see the options they have for buying and shopping locally, including a Chamber gift certificate. Retailers are not required to participate in New Mexico's tax-free holiday, so it's wise to check in advance for participating stores.
