  • When you don't have to pay taxes on certain things you buy. I was told they take the prices up to cover the taxes.

  • Only if it's worth my time and gas. So for clothes and paper and other basics, no. For computers and other major purchases (like sending a kid off to college and having to get everything they'll need to be on their own), yes.

  • Our state doesn't have tax free days, but there are some things that we don't ever have to pay taxes on, like clothes.

  • My state doesn't have tax free days. That would kill our governor if that was even suggested. Wait, maybe someone should suggest it.

  • ah hell yeah,
    I mean why pay all that nasty tax when you can get it taken off.
    Target is my favorite.
    But Wal-Mart Has some good deals too.

  • Typically no because the prices here go up to cover that. Also, we figured it up last year and realized we'd have to spend well over $100 at one store just to take advantage of not having to pay taxes.
