Living in Illinois, the only time I ever heard of sales tax savings was in a furniture store offer. Now times are a changing, because for the first time – the state of Illinois is having a sales tax holiday (August 6th – 15th) on school supplies, clothes and shoes worth $100 or less. This gets even better, because 17 states are offering sales tax relief on clothes, shoes, computers, energy products, school supplies and more.
Mark your calendar for your state’s sales tax holiday
