Missouri’s tax-free weekend expected to draw big crowds

Virginia and SC will hold theirs starting at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 3, and ending at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5.

Senate Bill 226 has established the tax-free weekend as a permanent day.

State officials estimate the sales tax holiday will reduce state revenue by up to $16.9 million in 2020.

The list of tax-exempt items includes: ice packs, most batteries, portable radios, duct tape, notebook paper, diapers and light bulbs. The state will waive taxes on certain school supplies and clothing, energy and water efficient appliances and hurricane preparedness items.

You can shop for school supplies, clothing, and some appliances without having to worry about added taxes.

Because of the crowds expected Friday through Sunday, some shoppers say they don't mind spending a little more now to avoid being slowed down by people on the tax-free weekend.

The sales tax holiday weekend in Florida runs August 3-5, 2018. Though state sales taxes were exempted on this holiday, local sales taxes were still applied. That will include most shoes, coats and jackets and baby clothes. There's no sales tax charged if the clothing and accessories you buy cost less than $60 per item.

The August tax holiday, enacted in 2005, costs the state about $3.3 million, according to August 2017 data from the Taxation and Revenue Department.

This is the fourth consecutive year of the tax relief in OH, made possible by House Bill 49.
