A sales tax holiday in the U.S. is a limited-time period where a state allows purchases of specific items to be made tax-free. States typically offer sales tax holidays in order to encourage consumer spending. 

While the holiday benefits consumers, businesses do not collect sales tax from customers on their purchases either.  

Sales tax holidays typically fall under one of the following categories:

  • Back-to-school: May include purchases of clothing, footwear, backpacks, computers or computer supplies, school supplies, books and more.
  • Clothing and footwear (excluding clothing accessories)
  • Energy-efficient home appliances (such as Energy Star and WaterSense qualified products)
  • Severe weather preparedness items: May include portable generators and other emergency preparation supplies.
  • Second Amendment: May include firearms, ammunition and hunting supplies.
