Sales Tax Holiday


Before you know it summer will be over and everyone will be heading back to school, which means back-to-school shopping is just around the corner. Missouri residents can take advantage of Missouri sales tax holiday, August 4-6, 2017. This holiday has been created by the Missouri Department of Revenue specifically for back-to-school purchases such as clothing, backpacks, and school supplies. However, this holiday does have some exemptions:

  • Clothing - any article having a taxable value of $100 or less
  • School supplies - not to exceed $50 per purchase
  • Computer software - taxable value of $350 or less
  • Personal computers - not to exceed $1,500
  • Computer peripheral devices - not to exceed $3,500
  • Graphing Calculators - not to exceed $150

Cities in Missouri are given the option to participate in this holiday. Cities that choose not to participate in the tax free weekend will still be exempt from state and county tax, but city tax will still apply to consumer purchases. For list of counties and cities that are not participating and additional information, visit the Missouri Department of Revenue website.
