2014 Tax Free Back to School Shopping Holiday / Weekend

Each year, several states participate in offering sales tax holidays to families.  The idea is to help save them money on some of the things they need for their kids like supplies, clothes and even electronics.  By suspending the collection of state, county or local sales tax, it keeps more money in your pocket when you have to pick up the items your school needs for your child to bring with them on the first day of class.

Below, you will find a sales tax map. To find out if your state participates, simply place your mouse on it.  If the pointer shape changes then you are in luck!  Your state participates and you can click to go directly to that states’s details including included and excluded items as well as the dates when the sales tax holiday will be offered.
