This tax holiday applied earlier this year but has NOT yet been approved by the New Jersey Legislature for 2024. As soon as I receive further information, this page will be updated. Be sure to check back often!
Don’t miss this year’s New Jersey Sales Tax Holiday when doing your back-to-school shopping. Unlike most states where the tax free weekend lasts only a few days, New Jersey’s tax holiday continues for 10 consecutive days:
Saturday, August 26
Sunday, August 27
Monday, August 28
Tuesday, August 29
Wednesday, August 30
Thursday, August 31
Friday, September 1
Saturday, September 2
Sunday, September 3
Monday, September 4
On these dates, you can purchase these items free of New Jersey sales tax:
– Computers priced at $3,000 or less per item.
– School computer supplies priced at $1,000 or less per item.
– School supplies.
– School art supplies.
– School instructional materials.
– Sport or recreational equipment sold to individual purchasers for non-business use.
Many stores will be having special back to school sales on eligible items in conjunction with the sales tax holiday. Walmart, Target, Belk, Neiman Marcus, Famous Footwear, Dillard’s, Sears, JCPenney, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Marshalls have frequent tax free weekend sales and back to school tax holiday promotions.
Be sure to take advantage of the New Jersey Sales Tax Holiday and back-to-school tax free weekend: August 26-September 4, 2023.
