Sales Tax Holiday Weekend Set For August 29th and 30th

I authored and filed bills to make an annual sales tax holiday permanent for many years. Last legislative session those efforts came to fruition when the House and Senate adopted legislation to do just that.

Now, you can plan for August 29th and 30th as a sales-tax-free holiday. The sales tax holiday allows shoppers to forgo paying the tax on most items, excluding food and drinks at restaurants, on purchases that cost less than $2,500. It is s a limited but effective way to give families some modest relief while also supporting local employers and businesses.
