Sales tax holiday

Most states make revenue off of sales tax, and removing it means big savings for many. For example, in Washington, residents pay an additional 9.29% after state and local taxes.

There are at least 5 states that operate without sales tax, including New Hampshire and Delaware. New Jersey and Minnesota are tax-free on clothing year round.

Many states are offering tax-free shopping weekends to encourage people to spend money.

What states are participating?

The states that have confirmed participation are:

  • Alabama
  • Arkansas
  • Connecticut
  • Florida
  • Illinois
  • Iowa
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • New Mexico
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • West Virginia

Is it good for online purchases too?

States that are offering a tax holiday will also allow tax-free purchases online. However, the purchase will need to meet certain requirements to qualify:

  • the purchase is completed during the tax-free weekend
  • the retailer you are shopping through is actively doing business in your state
  • the items purchased are eligible
  • you live in a participating state

Shopping online during these weekends may still save you money. However, you will still be responsible for any shipping costs.
