2015 Tax-Free Weekend: List Of Dates And States Offering A Tax Free Holiday Weekend Or Week

A number of states have already had their turn at some extra savings this year, but the 2015 tax-free weekend is just about to arrive for so many others. When this time of year comes, everyone can save a lot of money on school supplies, electronics, clothes, and so much more. The following list will give states participating in the upcoming tax-free weekend (or week in some cases), and the exact dates.

Many states will have three days of savings for the 2015 tax-free weekend, but there are others that will have it all last for seven days. Those in Florida have it best as the savings last for a full 10 days.

Each state has different rules for how things go and what can be purchased tax-free. For instance, Florida will have binders, calculators, paste, and legal pads all exempt from sales tax. On the other hand, there will still be sales tax on staplers, correction fluid products, and computer paper.

Make sure to check the details, information, and lists for your states’ tax-free weekend.

You need to have a rather good plan when going shopping for the 2015 tax-free weekend and get out there early. There are good chances that many things may be sold out due to shoppers getting large quantities of them, but having a decent plan in place will help you save a lot in different states and on different dates.
