Tax Free Weekend in Missouri Set for August 3-5

Tax Free Weekend in Missouri Set for August 3-5

This includes a variety of items, from pencils and paper to trousers and jackets to prepare for the fall.

Retailers exempt sales tax on back-to-school clothing and supplies beginning midnight Friday, Aug. 3, through 11.59 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5. In April, Gov. Scott Walker used a partial veto to extend the period to five days.

The Ohio Senate unanimously approved a bill earlier this year that made the three-day sales tax holiday permanent.

For information, visit tax.ohio.gov and look at the department's "Sales Tax Holiday Frequently Asked Questions" page.

"Sales tax holidays do not promote economic growth or significantly increase consumer purchases", the Tax Foundation said in a report.

For more information, visit the Wisconsin Department of Revenue website here. Clothing items up to $75 each and school supplies or instructional materials up to $20 each will be free of taxes if purchased during this weekend. He also encouraged people to look at the Chamber and see the options they have for buying and shopping locally, including a Chamber gift certificate. "It definitely helps with traffic and sales, having the tax free, everybody likes that savings", explained Pinson. Coupons and discounts available for items under the tax-free list may still be applied to reduce the item's sales price.

The new school year is just around the corner, and that means Missouri's tax-free weekend is coming up, too.

She adds taxes can be avoided on layaway items, as long as transactions take place this weekend.
