 2022 Sales Tax Holiday

During the annual Sales Tax Holiday, a variety of purchases are exempt from the state's 6% Sales Tax and any applicable local taxes. Tax-free items range from clothing, accessories, and shoes to school supplies, backpacks, and computers. As long as an item is eligible, it is tax-free whether purchased in-store or online.​​


 Online Shopping

Remember that eligible items are still tax-free if you shop online!​

  • Check with your local retailer to see if they offer online shopping, delivery, or curbside pick-up.
