Tax-Free Holidays for 2014

back to school tax free holidays

Tax-Free Holidays for back-to-school shoppers can save you a pretty penny with anywhere from a 4 to 7 percent savings on supplies and clothing!

 Why Should I Shop Now?

If you have multiple children, or a long list of school supplies you need, then you know that being able to save 4 to 7% off your school supplies adds up, quick!

In the United States, these tax-free holidays usually take place during August to help parents (and teachers) save on their back to school supplies and clothing. The best way to tackle a tax-free holiday is by:

  • Make a list of all school supplies needed
  • Make a list of clothing and shoe sizes you will need
  • Check your local newspaper or online store sales advertisements for the best deals
  • Plan which stores you will be going to and in which order (some stores have flash sales during these holidays for specific hours only)

Remember, not all states offer the same tax break. Check your local state for specifics on clothing and supply limits and what is and is not covered. You can click on the name of the participating state for more information from their state revenue site.
