Tax free weekend is underway

Posted: Updated:

If you've been holding off on back to school shopping, this is your weekend.

The state's annual sales tax holiday began Friday, August 11 and runs through Sunday. During this time, you won't have to pay sales tax on most back to school items as long as they're priced $100 or less.

That includes clothing, footwear, school supplies, backpacks, layaway items and more. For a full list of what you can buy, visit the state's website here.

Tax exemptions also apply to items bought online, by mail or telephone, as long as the total price including shipping charges is under $100.

For those wondering just how much they can save (and the best way to do it), our Fact Check team is on the case. To learn more about how to make sure you're spending wisely, visit our Fact Check here.
