Did you know that August 9th – 11th is the Back to School TAX FREE Weekend? It is a week earlier this year and it seems they have added a lot more items. Darn near everything in Walmart will be tax free so long as it is under $100.00.
The best thing about Tax Free Weekend is that you don’t have to have kids or be going back to school to get it. This is a great time to stock up on all kinds of things that I wouldn’t have even thought about being eligible. Things like Hunting Vests and Diapers. If you have kids that play sports and you are buying equipment, they even have shoulder pads on the list.
There are two separate lists of items that qualify for TAX FREE status. The first one is the list of qualifying clothing, footwear and other items. The second list is the School Supplies. The (T) means taxable and the (E) means exempt
This list does not include all items that may qualify for exemption during the sales tax holiday. It provides examples only.
