Florida's Back-to-School tax-free holiday begins this Friday

Ohio to have a sales-tax holiday Do's and Don'ts: WI sales tax holiday
Jan Cook | 03 August, 2018, 18:41

The state's annual sales tax holiday starts Friday and runs through Sunday.

Nonexempt accessories include jewelry, handbags, luggage, umbrellas, wallets, watches, and other similar items carried on or about the human body. School supplies are limited to $30 per item. "I think Louisiana not having that tax free brought people over and of course, we get people from Alabama too that want to take advantage". "It's going pretty good", she said.

Retailers can not collect sales or use tax during the days on qualifying items.

English also explained that by shopping local the sales bump up sales tax, which brings in even more businesses to the area. In Taos, it's 8.5 percent, and in Española, shoppers normally pay 8.9375 percent, according to the tax table on the department's website.

New Mexico is one of 14 states that offers a tax-free holiday for back to school shopping.

"It's sounds great politically, but tax experts say it's not sound policy", Davis said. Shoppers will also have the opportunity to utilize layaway during the weekend, or they can shop online. A Dell computer qualifies because it costs less than $1,000, while an Apple does not, he said. But most of the brands are priced just beyond the $100 limit.

"The tax break is for before-school [purchases]", Lumley said Wednesday, "but not for athletic participants".

ZEC confident no vote rigging in elections
All I can say is thank you Zimbabweans for refusing kuitiswa in the name of #GucciCheteChete because you knew that #Bobisinit. With 5.6 million registered voters, the results of the presidential, parliamentary and local elections are due by August 4.

"Clothing" includes, but is not limited to, shirts; blouses; sweaters; trousers; shorts; skirts; dresses; uniforms (athletic and nonathletic); shoes and shoe laces; insoles for shoes; sneakers; sandals; boots; overshoes; slippers; steeltoed shoes; underwear; socks and stockings; hosiery; pantyhose; footlets; coats and jackets; rainwear; gloves and mittens for general use; hats and caps; ear muffs; belts and suspenders; neckties; scarves; aprons (household and shop); lab coats; athletic supporters; bathing suits and caps; beach capes and coats; costumes; baby receiving blankets; diapers, children and adult, including disposable diapers; rubber trousers; garters and garter belts; girdles; formal wear; and wedding apparel. In Independence, 62 different schools have their supply lists on Walmart's app.

Tax-free items eligible this year include most clothing and footwear except for things like swim fins, in-line skates, watches (that's jewelry) and umbrellas.

Clothing will range from diapers and trousers to shorts and skirts. Conversely, tennis shoes are exempt, but tennis skirts and dresses are not.

State Sen. Rob McColley, R-Napoleon, expects Ohioans to save millions of dollars this year on back-to-school shopping.

Walker stated some of the surplus should be returned to tax payers in the form of a sales tax holiday.

Democrats have decried the holiday as an election-year gimmick. Retailers are not required to participate in New Mexico's tax-free holiday, so it's wise to check in advance for participating stores. That holiday is created to help small businesses.

"Due to sound fiscal management and a strong economy, the state had nearly a $400 million budget surplus", said Department of Revenue Secretary Richard Chandler in a statement last week. This year the state sales tax rate is 4.45 percent. So it definitely can help them save a little bit of money.
