There are not a few days in the year when this tax is not collected, they are called "tax holidays". What is it and when will they be, said the publication Leahingram.

This year there are several surprises for the tax holiday lover, now they apply to online purchases, as well as the company The Amazon I also decided to take a vacation.

It is very important that tax holidays on Amazon will only be in those states in which they will be and offline. In addition, each state has its own type of goods and the maximum cost for which this holiday applies, the same will be on Amazon. So be sure to check all the details before buying.

When shopping online, it is important to keep in mind that if you order during the holidays and pay after, then there will be a tax, you must pay in full on the tax-free weekend, even if the delivery is later. In addition, you can always place an order with self-delivery, so you will not have to wait, but you will not pay tax either.
