Skip the Sales Tax

Summertime brings sales galore, and if you time your back-to-school purchases right, you may be able to grab them sales-tax-free.

Fifteen states have back-to-school sales tax holidays in late July through August this year, with items ranging from computers to backpacks to clothing exempt from state sales tax.

Exemptions vary by state, but generally, items of clothing that cost less than $100 qualify. Among states that offer an exemption on computers, the upper limit ranges from $750 to $1,500.
