According to the website Yes We Coupon this year’s Sales Tax Holiday is August 11-13.  The holiday theoretically applies only to “back to school” items, but the list of exempted items is huge.  For all you 1st timers who are experiencing this, I want to give you a suggestion on how to approach “Sales Tax Holiday”.

In general, using common sense is the best way to save even more during tax-free week. This means comparing prices at different stores, which you can do online, and also using coupons—in addition to the tax-free savings—whenever possible.


Many parents will go to outlet malls during the tax holiday, but I also want you to consider visiting local stores, which may run a special sale to go with the tax free weekend.  If you want more tips on tax free weekend and how you can save click here.
