 2024 Tax Free Weekend

During the annual Tax Free Weekend (also known as the 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.​​
