Sales Tax Holiday This Weekend

The annual state and local sales tax holiday begins Friday, Aug. 5 and runs through Sunday, Aug. 7. The General Assembly created the holiday in 2001 and has expanded this year's list of exempt items to include instructional materials, such as reference books, maps, globes, textbooks and workbooks with an individual cost of up to $300. The previous price limit for individual items was $100.

During the tax holiday weekend, consumers will not pay sales tax on: clothes and footwear costing less than $100 each; school supplies such as pens, pencils, paper, notebooks, textbooks, book bags, lunch bags and calculators costing less than $100 each; sports and recreation equipment costing $50 or less each; computers costing less than $3,500 and computer supplies costing less than $250 each.

The following resources provide additional information about the sales tax holiday:
