    Does anyone know if tax free works if you are shopping online? For example, JC Penney normally charges tax in my state for online purchases. But would this be tax free during the weekend as well?

    • Kim says

      You can do a google search to find your state’s guidelines on their government website. In Missouri, it’s state tax free, but not city tax free in store or online, for certain school supplies & clothes as long as you pay for it that weekend. If we order online, then pay when we pick it up after that Sunday, we’ll be charged regular tax.

      Kim is correct. You need to check your State’s website to determine whether on-line, telephone, etc. sales will be tax-exempt. In Texas, on-line and telephone sales will be exempt during the tax-exempt weekend—but that may not be true in every State.

    My state is dumb! GA goes back to school on August 7th…our holiday is the weekend AFTER!

    • Jenna says

      We’re in central GA, and our county goes back 8/22. So, the state isn’t dumb, everyone is just not on the same schedule.

    will the thrift stores be participating in the tax free holiday or will it just be major retailers?
