    Why can’t California or Idaho participate..

    • bremoeller

      Right?!!Especially our taxes are so high here. UGH

  2. Winnie

    No North Carolina. I mean we are even taxed on food!

    • Stacy

      I feel you. Kansas doesn’t even do a lower tax for food. Everything is at 9.15% (for my city).

      • Winnie

        In some shopping area of Kansas sales tax is 10.1%! That’s crazy.

    • Sri

      I totally agreeπŸ˜•

  3. Andrea

    Some states are always sales tax free like Delaware

  4. Erica

    Georgia is suppose to be July 29 & 30.

    • coolrocks

      Thanks I was wondering as it has been on the list in the past

    • Brittany

      I was just about to ask about Georgia!

    • Ebony

      Thanks Erica

    • Jessica

      I saw yesterday per Gov Deal that Georgia is NOT having a tax free weekend this year…let me see if I can find the link and I’ll share it.

  5. Amy

    I think Ohio has only been doing this for a few years and I feel like it’s still glitchy due to this. I’ve had trouble with it not working on items it should, but definitely pretty great they’re doing this now!

  6. Ms. Bailey

    Yes, Delaware is already tax free!!! People from nearby states (PA, MD, NJ, VA) arrange bus tours to the Christiana Mall just to shop!!!

  7. Essie

    Oh man not Illinois I’m here at Chicago and out taxes are 10.75% too high would have liked it it if it was here too

  8. Christina

    Of course Pennsylvania isn’t on that list! πŸ™

  9. CJ

    NJ doesn’t participate but our clothes and shoes never have tax anyway so in that respect, we get the tax break year ’round! Now, computers, that would be a great thing to have tax free! Some places on line don’t charge tax so that is a help.

    Collin, I had to do a double take on the photo with the crayons. I thought it was Piper. πŸ™‚ Both beautiful!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for the sweet comment Michelle! πŸ˜‰

  11. Laue Inman

    Guess us that live in NC will have to go spend our money in SC or Virginia on school supplies , such a shame… SMH
