Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting explores upcoming state sales tax breaks to help parents as they prepare kids for a new school year.
As summer winds down, parents across the country are shifting their thoughts from lazy summer days to the back-to-school shopping frenzy. This August, several states are offering sales tax holidays where state sales tax charges are temporarily waived on back-to-school items and other qualifying products. These temporary tax exemptions only apply to specific items outlined by each state.
Consumers in some lucky states can make the most of their shopping dollars by taking advantage of these sales tax holidays this month.
