Did you know that if your state does a tax free weekend before school start that the stores charge 2 types of taxes the whole week before?

Yep they sure do. I keep telling myself not to buy anything the week before but it always ends up me buying something.

  • I knew it was something like that, I was told they took the price up during that weekend. But we all know the government will not go without.

  • Yeah I knew that. But my state is going so broke we havent even gotten our state refund checks back so tax free weekend here has stopped.

  • Yeah it's pretty much expected from their money hungry a$$es.

  • We don't have tax free weekend here, but if we start, I'll have to be on the lookout for that.
