tax free days


Saving money is largely based on knowing when to shop!  If you’ve got any big ticket back to school items then be sure to take advantage of this years Tax FREE Days! This is an amazing time to buy school supplies or any expensive product.  Keep in mind that the savings isn’t that great for small purchases… you are really wanting to use this for computers, big clothing purchases etc.

Here is a list of all the Tax Free Shopping dates by state.  Keep in mind they each have different limits and most of them are on the value of the item.  So if it says clothing $100 or less, that means any clothing item that is priced $100 or less will be tax free.  It doesn’t matter how many items you buy, but that their value not be above the limit.  Lousianna and South Carolina have the most flexible programs with no value limits.

      Is North Carolina not doing it?

      • Kathy

        No NC not doing this year.

        • srw

          That sucks!! Nc is so cheap!!

            Thank your NC State legislature. They eliminated the tax free holiday during last year’s session while they also lowered taxes for the state’s wealthiest citizens and cut funding to schools.

            • Coupon Queen

              Actually, that’s not really why NC does not participate in the tax free weekend anymore. They lowered the taxes so that EVERYONE would benefit in a tax decrease on their income taxes each year. It went from a 3 tier system to a flat rate of 5.8%. Therefore, people that do not have kids going to school or shop just that weekend have an advantage year round, not just one weekend. ( I have 2 kids but I would rather save more money year round rather than one weekend) By no means am I wealthy so I will gladly accept a tax decrease any day vs one weekend of tax free shopping. SC, TN, and VA participate in the holiday, so take a trip and grab some goodies there. NC legislature finally did something right.

      New York does not apply any sales tax on items priced $110 and less anytime of the year, so if you visit the Big Apple keep this in mind!

    • Tammie

      I guess I will have to go to SC if NC is not doing tax free day. NC will lose out

      • Kathy

        SC stores will gladly accept your money and those in GA since they have a cap on their spending!
