Oklahoma's tax-free weekend expected to draw big crowds

Ohio to have a sales-tax holiday

"We are really excited to kick off back-to-school with a brand new Pickup Tower in our store", said Store Manager Jason Sachs at the Walmart Supercenter on Carlisle Boulevard.

State Sen. Rob McColley, R-Napoleon, expects Ohioans to save millions of dollars this year on back-to-school shopping. Pinson said the mall will be running other promotions this weekend as well.

However, this year, she said, there are already middle-aged shoppers who are now shopping and looking to come back during the tax-free weekend to get additional discounts. Shoppers will also have the opportunity to utilize layaway during the weekend, or they can shop online. The local tax break on the Second Amendment Holiday will remain in place.

"The biggest misnomer about it, it's not just back-to-school products, there's a whole list of products, baby products, shoes, clothing, they're all tax free", said Mettler. Coats, hats, jackets and even swimsuits will be tax free this weekend.

Tax-free items eligible this year include most clothing and footwear except for things like swim fins, in-line skates, watches (that's jewelry) and umbrellas.

North Carolina did have a sales-tax holiday shopping weekend from 2002 until 2013, when the state Legislature under then-Gov.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is also a tax holiday in New Mexico, thanks to legislation passed in March. The small business tax holiday is projected to cost the state $1.7 million in revenue this year.

In Wake County, according to a table from the state Department of Revenue, the total sales tax is 7.25 percent.

"I suspect someone will file a bill to add them back and I'll look at it again", Davis said.
