All you cash-back, money-saving, deal-hunting, bargain-hunters grab your pen, stylus, smart phone, Siri, or whatever you use and mark your calendars, because you do not want to miss this years Tax Free Holiday.

Summers end is near and there hasn’t been a better time to save money on school supplies, clothing, cell phones and laptops. 16 states will be offering the sales tax exempt shopping event this year. That is one down from 2013, as North Carolina sales tax holidays have been repealed.

Tax free weekend is a great opportunity to stack savings on multiple products, so keep in mind it isn’t just for back-to-school. Certain states like Florida offer tax-free on hurricane preparedness equipment and generators. Other states offer tax-free on Energy Star/WaterSense products. Make sure you check the dates next to your state below.

We’ve created a list of items included and the maximum purchase limit, as well as a link to the information about the tax holiday on the state’s website. Avoid long lines and large crowds during back to school shopping season by shopping online. Some states like Tennessee allow you to shop tax free online, which means you can get cash back! Check your state to see if this applies.

Happy Tax Free Savings,

Austin
