  • Ohio to have a sales-tax holiday

In anctipation of the crowds, Cottonwood Mall has added hours to its weekend schedule, staying open until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday.

Waiting for the tax-free weekend to save a few bucks often means battling crowds of people who all want to save money on school supplies at the same time.

5, certain items will be exempt from state and county sales and use taxes.

The objective of the bill was to help parents buy all of their children's back-to-school needs.

North Carolina did have a sales-tax holiday shopping weekend from 2002 until 2013, when the state Legislature under then-Gov. "It's also big because it's right before fair, so everybody is wanting to rush in and get their back to school shopping finished".

The Ohio Department of Taxation has announced a two day, sales-tax holiday.

This year's back-to-school sales tax holiday is the fourth consecutive one to be held in the state of Ohio.

Parents getting ready to shop for school supplies on Missouri's tax-free weekend have some new options to make the task easier and faster.

School instructional materials are defined by the state tax department as, "reference books, reference maps and globes, textbooks and workbooks". Every year places like the Gulfport Premium Outlets gear up and offer even more sales on top of the already eliminated seven percent tax. That will include most shoes, coats and jackets and baby clothes.

If you haven't gone back to school shopping yet, this weekend will be the time to do it. So it definitely can help them save a little bit of money.
