Tax Free Weekends 2017


It’s that time of year again to start that back-to-school shopping spree.  Back-to-school shopping is one of the biggest shopping seasons for most retail stores. Some states like Maryland and South Carolina just to name a few like to help their fellow residents out by giving them what they call a tax-free holiday weekend.  There are 16 states that are participating in this tax-free holiday weekend, which means you won’t have to pay sales tax on certain items purchased. For the other states that choose not to participate, I would assume that their thought on this tax free holiday weekend didn’t sound to economically appealing. 

Having 16 states that are participating in this tax-free holiday gives you the option to cross your state borders and go shopping, so there is no need to worry.  Stay updated by visiting their state website located on the table below.

Do you know when your state’s 2017 tax-free weekend starts? Well below you’ll find the information needed to prepare your day for shopping.  There are links to each states website to give you more info if needed.  Do your research on layaways, online shopping and using discount coupons in combination with this tax free holiday weekend.

Happy Shopping!
