As I blogged about recently, back to school sales tax holidays are happening in states across the country. This weekend nearly a dozen states have their own programs, including: Iowa, Oklahoma, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. If you see your state on the list then be sure to check out my blog entry to find out what items are eligible.
KasasCity.com wrote up a helpful reminder of Missouri’s sales tax holiday and have also included information about a few communities in Missouri who have chosen not to participate this yea. Check out their article below.
Missouri’s sales tax holiday will run from 12:01 a.m. Friday through midnight Sunday. During the holiday, certain back-to-school purchases, such as clothing, school supplies and computers, are exempt from sales tax. The sales tax holiday applies to state sales taxes and local sales taxes, if the municipality chooses to participate.
However, several Kansas City area communities have opted out this year, including Claycomo, North Kansas City, Oak Grove, Peculiar, Platte City, Platte Woods, Riverside and Sugar Creek. Those cities will still collect local sales taxes.
