Friday morning marked the beginning of Iowa’s annual Sales Tax Holiday.
John Fuller, spokesman for the Iowa Department of Revenue, spoke to Radio Iowa about what the holiday entails.
“Generally, if they buy any item of clothing or any footwear that’s less than $100 per item, that will not have state sales tax,” Fuller says. “If they have specific items that they’re looking for, they can go to tax.iowa.gov, and there’s a list of what’s taxable and what’s not.”
The Sales Tax Holiday ends at 11:59 PM on Saturday. Fuller says the same tax-free benefits apply to online purchases.
