However, this year, she said, there are already middle-aged shoppers who are now shopping and looking to come back during the tax-free weekend to get additional discounts.

Ohio's sales tax holiday will begin Friday August 3rd and will last through Sunday, the 5th.

Virginia and SC will hold theirs starting at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 3, and ending at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5.

"Our Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday is another way we are providing relief to Wisconsin's hardworking families", said Governor Walker.

New Mexico is one of 14 states that offers a tax-free holiday for back to school shopping.

An important distinction is that sports and recreational equipment is not considered clothing, and is not tax exempt during this weekend. "That way throughout the year, they have a little bit more to spend". "It's also big because it's right before fair, so everybody is wanting to rush in and get their back to school shopping finished". That will include most shoes, coats and jackets and baby clothes.

She adds taxes can be avoided on layaway items, as long as transactions take place this weekend.

It may be a little early for back-to-school shopping, but if you're in need of certain items, you might just want to hit the stores a little early this year.

Does the "sales tax holiday" apply to sales made by mail order, Internet or similar retailers?

The tax holiday qualifies for personal-use items only.

"School supplies" - any item normally used by students in a standard classroom for educational purposes, including but not limited to, textbooks, notebooks, paper, writing instruments, crayons, art supplies, rulers, book bags, backpacks, handheld calculators, graphing calculators, chalk, maps and globes.
