Sales tax holiday for BTS supplies set for August 3 to 5

Do's and Don'ts: WI sales tax holiday

This year, the state's Back to School Sales Tax Holiday runs from 12:01 a.m. August 3 to midnight August 5 - that's this Friday through Sunday!

Starting Wednesday, the Badger State is having a "sales tax holiday", meaning certain items are exempt from the state's 5 percent sales tax.

In 2017 shoppers saved 5 percent during the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday.

Materials used in a trade or business are not exempt under the sales tax holiday.

The Exchange tried to contact the Laurinburg Walmart to see if there is a dip in sales during the tax-free weekend due to people traveling to SC but there was no word back.

"It seems like more people are aware of it this year than before", said Burger.

But all three of Louisiana's neighbors have back-to-school holidays in place this year.

School supplies priced at $50 or less per item: includes textbooks, notebooks, paper, writing instruments, crayons, art supplies, rulers, book bags, backpacks, handheld calculators, graphing calculators, chalk, maps, and globes.

Heads up, back-to-school shoppers, the 2018 tax-free weekend is coming up fast. Marketing and Special Leasing Representative from the Colony Square Mall, Kevin Pinson, said this weekend always draws in a bigger crowd than normal.

It's also a good time to get items tax-free for storm and emergency preparedness. For example, if a retailer sells a pair of trousers during the sales tax holiday for $75 and also charges $10 to alter the trousers, then the entire charge of $85 is exempt from the sales or use tax.
