Tax holidays in the USA: when and in which states you can save on purchases

The new school year is approaching, and the thought of stocking up on fresh notebooks, pencils and folders is both exciting and scary. All these school supplies, electronics and new clothes tend to be very expensive. Unless, of course, you can buy everything you need during the tax holidays. Writes about it RetailMeNot.

During tax holidays, some states lower sales taxes on certain items and make shopping more affordable. Most major retailers like Walmart, Amazon and Target will participate.

There are 16 states participating in the program this year, as well as five states - Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon - that never levy sales taxes.

When tax holidays

It depends on the state. But keep in mind that most tax holidays start at 00:01 am and end at midnight. If your state doesn't have this privilege, it might be time to take a trip.
