Alaska Sales Tax Holiday Free Weekend

July 30, 2018

If you live in Alaska, consider yourself fortunate when it comes to taxes. Alaska is one of five states that do not have a sales tax:

– Alaska
– Delaware
– Montana
– New Hampshire
– Oregon

Some cities in Alaska do levy a municipal sales tax. However, there is no statewide sales tax. Therefore, no sales tax holiday or tax free weekend is necessary for Alaska. Every day is a sales tax holiday! Back to school shopping is always cheaper (and better) when no sales taxes are required!

Arizona Sales Tax Holiday Free Weekend

July 29, 2018

If you live in Arizona, I have some bad news: Arizona will not be having a sales tax holiday or tax free weekend in 2018. All back to school purchases during July and August will be subject to the normal combined state + county + city sales tax rate. In most areas, the total sales tax is between 8% and 9%.

If you happen to be traveling this summer, these 17 states WILL be holding sales tax holidays: Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon have no state sales tax. In Minnesota and Pennsylvania, clothing and footwear are exempt.

Keep your fingers crossed and maybe (hopefully!) your legislators will enact an Arizona sales tax holiday for 2019.
