Sales Tax Holiday Begins Today

Back-to-school shoppers will get a boost this weekend during the state's sales-tax holiday.


The tax holiday started just after midnight and continues through midnight on Saturday. Shoppers will save 7 percent on eligible items.

The tax holiday does not include all retail purchases. Clothing and footwear that cost less than $100 are exempt from sales tax. Accessories such as jewelry, purses and backpack are not eligible. School supplies are also not eligible.

For information, visit the Department of Revenue's website.
