When is Tax Free Weekend

If you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering “When Is Tax Free Weekend?”. One of the biggest back to school shopping weekends is sneaking up quickly on many states. It’s okay if you’re unsure of which items are included in the tax free category. Even the most savvy shoppers can never be 100% sure. The truth is, every state with an official sales tax holiday has a different set of rules. Here’s the scoop on the upcoming sales tax holidays from The Federation of Tax Administrators. (If you’re state isn’t listed below, it means there is no official sales tax holiday during the back to school shopping season.)
