As much as some may not want to admit it, the new school year is getting ever closer and it’s time to do some back-to-school shopping. That being said, anyone and everyone would like some extra savings to keep a bit of cash in their pockets. The 2016 tax-free weekend happens at different times for different states and you need to know when it’s happening so you can take advantage of savings on school supplies, clothing, electronics, and so much more.
Some states will have three days of savings while others will only have two. There are even some states which will stretch an entire week with stores giving tax-free savings well outside of the advertised dates so never stop looking or asking if the deals are still in place.
Now, not everything is up for grabs on tax-free weekends and you need to know the rules and stipulations for saving. NBC affiliate 11 Alive has broken down the three different groups that are typically included in all states:
- Computers, computer components, and software that has a sales price of $1,000 or less.
- School supplies, school art supplies, school computer supplies and school instructional materials with a sales price of $20 or less.
- Clothing and footwear that has a sales price of $100 or less.
Make sure to check the rules for your own state as they can change.
