2012 Sales Tax Holiday Scheduled Dates

It’s nice to be able to avoid sales taxes sometimes. It’s a common gimmick amongst car dealers and some furniture stores to get you in the door: “We’ll pay your sales tax!”

But there are some states that actually offer holidays on sales tax. Even though it means a reduction in revenue for the states, they still line up for the sales tax holidays because consumers love them. The idea is that a sales tax holiday can encourage shopping and boost the economy in the state — and maybe even draw consumers from neighboring states to do a little shopping.

Some states don’t even charge sales tax at all. If you live in Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, or Oregon, you already know that there’s no sales tax. And in Pennsylvania, you don’t have to worry about sales tax on clothing.

Here are a list of states with upcoming sales tax holidays. Check to see if your state is on the list. You can follow the links for more information:
