Sales Tax Holidays 2014 (Save on Clothes & School Supplies)

Save on Clothes and School Supplies with Sales Tax Holidays 2014 | MoneywiseMoms

Save on clothes & school supplies if your state is participating in a Sales Tax Holiday for Clothes & School Supplies. Even if you do not have children attending school, it’s a good time to stock up on office supplies or preschool art supplies at back-to-school sale prices with no sales tax. Qualifying school supplies selling for $20 or less per item and clothing/footwear selling for $100 or less per item are exempt from sales tax. Virginia’s holiday runs Friday through Sunday, August 1st-3rd. Check Virginia’s list of qualifiying items.

  1. Great tips. I almost forgot NC did away with it. Guess I will hit the surrounding states. Thanks.

  2. I’m sad to hear NC doesn’t do it anymore! That was my favorite shopping weekend when I lived there! We don’t have them in PA, either. We never pay taxes on clothes (unless they’re ball gowns or something,) so we we miss out on the gleeful sales that surround these tax free holidays.
