Yes, it does seem too soon to start thinking about Back-to-School shopping, but there are some Sales Tax Holidays that are creeping up on us! The first one starts July 29th and a little planning ahead may save you some big bucks! So check out the list and see if your state is participating so that you can plan accordingly. If your state is not listed, legislation has not been approved authorizing a sales tax holiday and you should contact your state legislator for more information and even let them know you’d like to see one! Every penny counts when you consider how much is spent on school shopping each year!
