Some states have already had their Tax Free Shopping Weekends but most are THIS weekend or in the upcoming August weekends.  Below is a list.

Don’t forget to check out this list of 10 Surprising Things that are Tax Free during Tax Free weekend (some states include DIAPERS!)


Here’s a list of states having a back-to-school-tax free shopping weekend for 2017!  Tax free does not mean that the tax rate will be 0% in all areas.  Participating states will be waiving the STATE tax but there are still city and county taxes.  Some cities and counties may waive their taxes as well.  Check your state link for more details.  It may be beneficial to drive to another city or across county lines if the one you’re in is not waiving the additional taxes.

Tax free weekends start in July in some states.  Most states have it the first weekend in August.  Some offer it for a full week.  Not all states offer a tax free shopping weekend.
