Yes we have it every year on the 1st weekend in August starting on Friday ending on Sunday. I live in Alabama.

I'm in PA too, about an hour from Delaware which has no sales tax so a lot of people shop there too. I think we do tax free a couple of times a year.

Quoting IhartU:

I live in Pennsylvania. We don't pay taxes on clothing so people from Ohio, New York and even Cananda come here to shop for school.

Yep, it is always a weekend in August. We don't get taxed on clothing, but it really helps with school supplies.

 Nope. But we have no tax on food (except restaurants and convenience items) and clothing. School supplies like crayons, pencils, etc. are taxed all the time- no special tax free weekends.

 I'm also in PA, so I never pay sales tax on food, clothing, or shoes.  PA doesn't have a tax free weekend.
