The tax holidays are special days that the purchase of certain items up to a certain amount are sold without a sales tax. The tax holidays have nothing to do with the federal taxes as states decide whether or not to have a tax holiday. This is also known as the sales tax holiday. Generally, the tax holidays collide with the back to school season to help reduce the cost of shopping for school supplies.
Since states decide on when to have a tax holiday, the dates are going to be different depending on where you live. Take note that not all states have a tax holiday. To know exactly everything about the tax holiday in your state, you can contact the tax department.
Below, you can see the general tax holidays that are not related to the back-to-school season. Because back to school season is such a big deal regardless of where you go, we made a separate article about it.
