Sales Tax Holiday

For many years, I authored and filed bills to make an annual sales tax holiday a permanent and reliable component of our calendar. Last legislative session those efforts came to fruition when the House and Senate adopted legislation to do just that.

You can access this sales-tax-free holiday this weekend - August 29th and 30th. 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.
