Sales Tax Holiday in August for Selected States

Good news! Several states' legislatures have passed a special sales tax holiday during specific dates in August. During this period, sales tax does not apply to school supplies. The participating states typically define school supplies as any item normally used by students in a standard classroom for educational purposes.

The following states are participating in the sales tax holiday:

Alabama: August 3-5
District of Columbia: August 4-12
Florida: August 4-13
Georgia: August 2-5
Louisiana: August 3-4
Missouri: August 3-5
New Mexico: August 3-5
North Carolina: August 3-5
South Carolina: August 3-5
Tennessee: August 3-5
Virginia: August 3-5

Here is the chart of what applies. I'm not sure how big this picture is going to show up, but if you click on it you can see it full size.
