Several states offer a tax break for parents buying back-to-school supplies. It’s a growing trend with more states allowing this each year, so check with your state. During the tax holiday, qualifying items are exempt from sales tax. Each state program varies.

School Supplies – includes pencils, paper, and notebooks that sell for less than the specified dollar amount.

Clothing and Shoes – jackets, pants, shirts, and coats generally qualify if they cost under a certain amount. Note that sporting equipment typically doesn’t qualify for the exemption.

Computers and Electronics - computers and related accessories less than the specified amount are exempt. However, gaming systems, televisions, and cell phones are excluded.
