Arkansas’ annual sales tax holiday is set for Aug. 7-8, the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration announced in a tweet on Monday.
The annual holiday, which runs from 12:01 a.m. on Aug. 7 to 11:59 p.m. Aug. 8, allows shoppers to buy certain school supplies, art supplies, instructional materials, electronic devices and clothes without being charged local or state sales or use tax.
“[The list of exempt items] includes items purchased online if they are shipped to an Arkansas address,” the Department of Finance and Administration’s tweet read.
During the 48-hour holiday, tax won’t be collected on:
Clothing and footwear if the sales price is less than $100 per item.
Clothing accessories and equipment if the sales price is less than $50 per item.
Electronic devices most frequently used by students.
School art supplies.
School instructional material.
There are some items which remain taxable despite their possible association with exempt categories.
