During this holiday, the following items are exempt from sales tax:

  • An item of clothing priced at $75 or less
  • School supplies each priced at $20 or less, and
  • An item of school instructional material (textbooks, reference materials, etc.) priced at $20 or less.

Items used in a trade or business are not exempt under this sales tax holiday.
