See If Your State Is Having a Back-to-School Tax-Free Weekend
Parents will drop an estimated $510 per household on items needed for school this year, according to Deloitte’s annual back-to-school shopping survey. You can save some cash, however, by knowing when to buy stuff. Your best bets: Either late in the season when products are often discounted, or during one of the back-to-school tax-free weekends happening soon across the country. Find out if your state is participating below.
Items that you can purchase without state sales tax vary from state to state, but may include clothing, school supplies, books and computers. Each state has its own stipulations—for instance, tax-free clothing is capped at $100 in many places—so visit your appropriate government website (usually the department of revenue page) to read the fine print. Also, local sales tax may still apply.
