These Are The Dates For Back-To-School Tax-Free Weekends In Every State

Summer might have just kicked off for many kids across the country, but it looks like parents are already marking down a very important date on their calendars. And no, it’s not the first day back at school. Instead, it’s the back-to-school tax-free weekends that will help save everyone a lot of money on school gear, books, supplies and more.

During tax-free weekends, many states suspend the collection for state, county and local taxes for a few days each year on back to school items. This means you get to pocket a little extra money while buying all of the essentials that your kids need.

If you live in a state where the sales tax is 10 percent and you spend $600 on supplies, you end up saving $60. You can also save money on your children’s school wardrobe, shoes, computers, electronics, gadgets, and more. Below is a list of participating states for this summer’s back-to-school tax-free weekend:
