Does your state have a tax free weekend for back to school shopping?

I'm in Colorado, and we don't, but I wish we did!

If you have a tax free weekend coming up, what do you plan on buying?

I grew up in MI and now live in IN neither ever had tax free weekend.

NC had it, we lived there for 2 years but our oldest was newborn-2yr there and nothing he needed was "school" related.

I'm in MN. We never pay taxes on clothes, and we can write off the school supplies on our state tax return forms.

I think that's easier than dealing with crowds for one particular weekend.

I think it's a big deal on clothes shopping, as opposed to the cost of school supplies. We don't pay taxes on clothes in MN anyhow, so it wouldn't really benefit us.

Quoting lilmama8408: I grew up in MI and now live in IN neither ever had tax free weekend. NC had it, we lived there for 2 years but our oldest was newborn-2yr there and nothing he needed was "school" related.

We do in NM. I wake up super early and get everything before the crowds.

Nope not in FL. I'm too far south to sneak into GA for theirs.

Yes, but my county does not participate which is annoying.
