  1. Tammy

    This is very helpful. Thank you!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! You’re very welcome, Tammy! Glad to hear that. 🤗💗

  2. Stacy

    Does Idaho ever offer this?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Stacy! I did some digging, and though Idaho may have offered this in the past, it seems they don’t have a scheduled tax-free holiday happening in 2023. Bummer! We’ll keep our eyes peeled for any updates! ❤️

      • Stacy

        Thank you Jessica!

        • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re so welcome! 💓

  3. Natalie

    Does GA offer it for 2023?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Natallie! I searched a bit on this, and it seems that Georgia isn’t included in the sales tax holiday for 2023. 😔 Hoping they may be included for the following year! 🤞💗

  4. Penny Garlock

    Figures, our governor doesn’t offer this. She only gives to the city, not our STATE. They should make the city it’s own state. We need a governor that helps the people beyond her zip code

    • Amber

      I can only imagine you’re talking about New York. If not, add it to the list!

  5. Judy

    It’s a hit or miss. Last year when I shopped online for clothes it wasn’t taxed. This year during the tax free dates for my state, all the clothes online was taxed. It’s strange! They need to fix the issue!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh no! Thanks so much for sharing how it worked for you this year online, Judy. ❤️ Hoping you might be able to get in contact with the company you purchased from to find out if the tax collection was correct on your order. 🤞

  6. A. Coleman

    What are the tax-free dates in Virginia, please? And which stores?
    Thank you!

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! It seems Virginia doesn’t have a scheduled tax-free holiday happening in 2023. Hoping they might be included next year! 🤞💕
