This page covers the 2010 Sales Tax Holiday Schedule.
Sales tax holidays have gained in popularity in recent years, in part because of the economy but mostly because everyone wants to get a good deal, and more and more states are starting to get in the fun. It will be interesting to see what states do this year as many are seeing budget shortfalls as a result of sagging home prices. It’s a trade-off between boosting the economy and surrendering tax revenue (and politicians voting against very popular sales tax holidays!), it’ll be interesting to see as we start to near the usual “full swing” period of sales tax holidays.
There are usually three different types of sales tax holidays: hurricane preparedness, clothing and school supplies, and energy efficient appliances.Hurricane preparedness sales tax holidays usually occur in late April or May. Clothing and school supplies sales tax holidays are almost always in the period before school starts, so sometime in August. Finally, Energy efficiency tax sales appear in the winter and last several months.
The state names link to the state’s Department of Revenue or some other resource that explains the sales tax holiday in detail:
And for those of you who live in Pennsylvania, consider yourself lucky as you have a clothing and footwear sales tax holiday from January 1st to December 31st!
