Sales tax on school, emergency supplies to take holiday August 3-5

Starting Friday Florida's Back-to School Sales Tax Holiday begins

Shoppers get ready. Ohio's sales tax holiday is set for this weekend.

Wisconsin's first ever Sales Tax Holiday starts Wednesday (August 1 - August 5) and there's a list of items you can buy sales tax free. In April, Gov. Scott Walker used a partial veto to extend the period to five days.

"If a pair of jeans is sold for $100 during the sales tax holiday, the entire $100 is taxable", according to the DOR website.

Over the weekend, people across the state of MS hit the racks for Tax Free Weekend.

Whether you're paying the bills or know someone who is, there's no denying back-to-school shopping is expensive.

European countries are also utterly devoted to one of the biggest barriers in EU-U.S. trade: geographical indications. It also will provide funds to outside organizations to build overseas markets for USA food and ag exports.

Tax-exempt items include most school supplies selling for $15 or less per item and most clothing and footwear selling for $60 or less per item.

Qualifying Energy Star or WaterSense products (must be purchased for noncommercial or personal use): $2,500 or less per item.

Back in January, Walker stopped at the La Crosse Airport, holding a Spider-Man backpack touting the sales tax holiday, along with the recently completed $100 per child tax credit - which pundits also called an election gimmick.

Before families take advantage of tax-free weekend sales, Offers.com suggest that Ohioans utilize coupons, research store discounts, and utilize options like layaway and online ordering.
