Sales Tax Holiday Dates

As a working mom of six I have to seriously plan for the Back to School Financial Crunch each year.   Back to School can easily destroy a budget. especially with my oldest beginning college and three kids in Junior High School this year.  I always look forward to the "Tax Free" days of back to school shopping but I always seem to have trouble finding those dates.

See if your state is participating in offering tax free purchases of certain items.  Every state is different regarding the date and the items that may be purchased "tax free".


 Here it is:
