It must be back to school time because the Tax Free Weekends are starting! When I lived in Texas, this was a huge incentive to shop, as that whopping 8.25% was a big savings! Or even now, in the great state of Louisiana where I went to college, that 9% hit hard. Clearly, those states who offer tax free weekends (hooray for Massachusetts) are helping out a bit.
Which states offer the tax free weekend, you ask? Well, allow me to share! And if you want the specifics on what items (usually under a certain dollar amount) are discounted, check out this site.
For those of us in MA, check out the sales on August 13th and 14th. I'll be ready to hit the outlets :) And the rest of the US really should get on the bandwagon...
