What is Tax Free Weekend?
A tax holiday is a temporary suspension of a tax. In the United States, “sales tax holidays” are periodic events during which consumers do not have to pay sales taxes on specific purchases. Sixteen states (AL, AR, DE, GA, IA, LA, MD, MS, MO, NM, NC, OK, SC, TN TN, and VA) and the District of Columbia held sales tax holidays in 2018.
During these events shoppers can buy qualifying items without paying the state’s sales tax. The lack of sales tax can save shoppers anywhere from 2% to 7% of the cost of their purchases depending on the state in which they live.
