    A tax-free weekend spending spree.. 13 states offering

    A tax-free weekend spending spree

    Thirteen states and the District of Columbia offer sales-tax holidays this year -- most falling on this weekend. Merchants hope it's like the day after Thanksgiving in August.



    Merchants nationwide are planning special promotions and longer hours this weekend, a bid to lure customers into a shopping spree like the day after Thanksgiving.
    Thirteen states and Washington, D.C., have sales-tax holidays pegged to back-to-school shopping. That could help soften the blow on families with school-age children, which will spend an average of $527 on back-to-school items this year, according to the National Retail Federation.
    Tax holidays are new in Tennessee, Alabama and Virginia, and Maryland is offering a tax break for the first time since 2001.
    Other sales-tax holiday states are Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. New York, the first state to offer a sales-tax holiday in 1997, ultimately made a sales tax exemption on clothing and shoes under $110 permanent in April.

    PA used to do a tax free weekend but it was for buying computers only.

    We have this here in Georgia and after several years of having it retailers are catching on and now car dealerships and furniture stores are offering to pay the sales tax on purchases on the "Sales Tax Holiday" weekend.
