Iowa Annual Tax Free Holiday This Weekend
It doesn't matter if your child will be going back to school in the classroom or in your home office, they will need clothes that actually fit. Which is why the Iowa Tax Free Holiday is back again for your shopping needs.
The sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 on Friday August 7th and ends at midnight on Saturday, August 8th. All open businesses are required to participate and cannot "pay" the tax for you.
So what does clothing exactly mean. According the states website:
any article of wearing apparel and typical footwear intended to be worn on or about the human body. "Clothing" does not include...watches, watchbands, jewelry, umbrellas, handkerchiefs, sporting equipment, skis, swim fins, roller blades, skates, and any special clothing or footwear designed primarily for athletic activity or protective use and not usually considered appropriate for everyday wear.
If you don't want to head to the stores due to COVID-19 or just want to avoid the lines, you can still take advantage of the deals online. According to offers.com you can avoid taxes on items you order online as long as you place your order during the tax-free holiday.
The Iowa sales tax holiday, unlike other states, does not include computers and school supplies. For a full list of what other states have going on and how you can take advantage of it check out more info here.
