Take a Break from State and Local Taxes While Shopping this Year’s Tax-Free Holidays

You can enjoy considerable saving on clothes and school supplies starting August 1 during tax-free days in select states and jurisdictions.

This is  a great opportunity for shoppers looking to save money during a summer characterized by national economic slowdown and record gas prices. If you live in or near a state that offers tax-free days, this is an especially good time to make that big ticket purchase you’ve been saving up for – like a new computer or software.

Smart shoppers and bargain hunters will be happy to hang on to those dollars that they would normally part with just for sales tax alone. Many stores will also be offering additional specials during the tax-free days.

However, to avoid surprises and overspending, it’s a good idea to set a budget and know what is tax free before hitting the stores. Thanks to Don’t Mess with Taxes for a great breakdown of tax exempt items by state.
