It's that time of year again, TAX FREE WEEKEND! If you are willing to brave the crowds and save some money this weekend is it. Starting August 9th-11th, 2013 you can SAVE yourself about $8.00 on every $100 that you spend for back-to school items and school supplies. This can add up to some BIG SAVINGS!
Here is a sample of the TAX FREE ITEMS.
- Shoes (dressy / athletic)
- Under garments
- Suits (Dressy Jackets and Pants)
- Uniforms (School or Work)
- Backpacks (Elementary and Secondary)
- Folders (Expandable, pocket, plastic and manila)
- Lunch Boxes
- Pencil Sharpeners
- Writing Tablets
- Legal Pads
- Composition Books
First time I have seen layaway apart of the tax free holiday. A sale of a qualifying item under a layaway plan qualifies for exception if the customer places the qualifying merchandise on layaway during the holiday or makes the final payment during the holiday.
