Tax-Free Weekends

There are 16 states that help with back-to-school shopping by declaring "tax-free weekends," meaning no state sales tax on certain items during certain days. States running the program this weekend include Alabama, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Iowa, Louisiana, and Arkansas, although exact dates vary.
Before you get too excited though, I should make note of the fact that most states place a dollar limit on what is tax-exempt. For example, Alabama’s tax holiday offers a tax break on any articles of clothing $100 or less. This means that a pair of jeans costing $125 would be taxed but a jacket for $99 would be tax-free, so be aware of any specific rules your state may have during tax holidays.

To help out, BargainJack has assembled a handy chart detailing the dates and limitations for each state, with links to government information. Link

Oh and I just read that these tax free days most benefit the rich... I guess we should just make sure the rich get richer, they need it more. Sorry... I mean job creators...

Hmmmm, I wonder why the boneheaded liberal left doesn't seem to grasp this basic concept.........
Lower taxes, increase sales make up revenue in volume.
Of course to the left, it's all about POWER; not logic or compassion.
