Northwest Iowa (Radio Iowa) — For the 18th straight year, Iowans can take advantage of tax-free shopping on certain items Friday and Saturday this week.
Nicole Watson, at the Iowa Department of Revenue, says the annual Sales Tax Holiday is a time to save cash, especially for parents who are stocking up on their kids’ school clothes.
Watson says the tax-free shopping period is popular with shoppers and merchants statewide.
The Iowa Department of Revenue website details what items will be tax-free — and what ones aren’t — during the two day period.
Other tax exempt items include: caps and hats, socks, underclothing, uniforms for work and school, coats, bathing suits, leotards and tights, costumes and diapers. Other items that WILL still be taxed include: computers, school supplies, jewelry, fabric, athletic clothing and athletic footwear not usually for everyday wear. The holiday runs from 12:01 A-M on Friday though 11:59 P-M on Saturday. For more information, visit tax.iowa.gov.
