2012 Sales Tax Holidays


Comments

If you’ve had you peepers on a little something in the storefront window, this may be the time to pull the trigger.  16 states are waiving sales tax in the coming weeks, 12 are this weekend.

Clothing is eligible for the tax holiday in all 16 states.  North Carolina considers baby diapers “clothing”.  This may be a good time to see if Pee Paw can fit into Husky Huggies.  Aftershave and deodorant are considered “clothing” in Arkansas.  From what I have seen on “Cops – Little Rock”, a shirt is not.

Here are the details on the 16 state sales tax holidays, in alphabetical order:
