It’s that time of the year when shoppers in certain states can get their hands on new tech tax-free before school starts. To help you shop smart and save big, we’re here with some advice for crossing off some of those back-to-school essentials on your shopping list.
This year, multiple states will have tax exemptions on select products, including laptops, tablets, computing accessories, and more. We’re looking at you, Arkansas, Florida, Missouri, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
See the gallery below for a breakdown of tax-free sales by state. (For full details on your state’s tax-free weekend, check your local department of revenue website.)
