Tax-Free Shopping Days for 2014

submitted on July 15, 2014 by HouTex in "Sales / Promotions"
The Tax Free Holidays for 2014 are coming up, usually coinciding with Back-to-School shopping. The eligible items differ by state, and not all states participate. See this link for the alphabetical list by state - http://www.taxadmin.org/fta/ra.....liday.html or the following list sorted by date:
July 25-26: Mississippi
August 1-2: Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana
August 1-3: Alabama, Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia
August 2-4: Arkansas
August 8-10: Texas
August 10-16: Maryland
August 17-23: Connecticut



Americans will spend more on taxes in 2014 than on food, clothing, and housing combined! Eeek

    Wow, I didn't realize there were any states with no sales tax until you mentioned it. Eeek
    So I searched and found that there are 5 states - Oregon, Delaware, New Hampshire, Montana, and Alaska. See http://www.dailyfinance.com/20.....sales-tax/

    Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio lawmakers are considering adding sales tax holidays, see https://tax.thomsonreuters.com.....x-holiday/ , http://www.mlive.com/lansing-n.....les_tax_h. and http://news.heartland.org/news.....oan-policy

    Analysts argue that these tax-free weekends are not as beneficial as hoped, because shoppers simply shift their planned purchases to that weekend and the holidays don't actually increase sales. In addition, the states lose the sales tax revenue for that period, and it hurts those shoppers who are financially unable to shift their purchases. Sad
