Back-to-School Sales Tax Breaks


With back-to-school just around the corner, shoppers—students and parents alike—can find a bit of relief from costly school supplies.

According to, some states are waiving local sales tax on items such as computers, clothing, “school supplies” and even small appliances.

Some of these local, “tax-free” offers start today and last for some time. Other states’ waivers are valid only for a certain span of days.

Either way, check the list below to see when—or if—your state will offer these shopping incentives, and for what products. (For instance, some states only ax the tax on clothing, while others includes school supplies, and still others on computers.)
