* Back To School Tax Free Weekend! *

I can't believe that it is already August and almost time to go back to school! We have really enjoyed ourselves this summer, and I plan to squeeze every drop of fun out of our remaining vacation days! Even though I will continue to celebrate summer, I have to prepare for the inevitable.
In many states, this weekend is Tax Free Weekend for school supplies and clothing. Here in Virginia, Back To School purchases of supplies $20 and under and clothing $100 and under are tax free. Different states have different thresholds for the tax free qualification. You can always check your state's website to see what the limit is. Listed below is a list of the states and dates, that I have found, that participate in The Back To School Tax Free Weekend.
  • Alabama          August 1-3
  • Arkansas          August 2-3
  • Connecticut      August 17-23
  • Florida             August 1-3
  • Georgia            August 1-2
  • Iowa                August 1-2
  • Louisiana          August 1-2
  • Maryland          August 10-16
  • Missouri           August 1-3
  • New Mexico      August 1-3
  • Oklahoma         August 1-3
  • South Carolina  August 1-3
  • Tennessee        August 1-3

  • Virginia             August 1-3
I just made my list yesterday, and pretty much have to shop for everything! Make sure to pair your shopping with sales or coupons to make the most of your shopping!
