It’s almost time to send the kids back to school. We all know that can get expensive. Every year at this time, the state declares a sales tax holiday for a weekend to help ease the pain of back-to-school shopping.
This year’s sales tax holiday is Aug. 8 – 10. As in previous years, the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced under $100 from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 they spend.
