Iowa’s Annual Sales Tax Holiday is This Weekend

The 2019-2020 school year starts in just three weeks for Legacy School students! And if you’re looking to get a head start on school clothes shopping, this weekend is the weekend to do it. Why? If you take a short drive east, you’ll be able to take advantage of Iowa’s Sales Tax Holiday, this weekend, August 2nd & 3rd, for select clothing and footwear.

Save during Iowa’s Annual Sales Tax Holiday

The annual Sales Tax Holiday in Iowa is held the first Friday and Saturday of August. Businesses that are open on these days and sell qualifying items are required to participate. During the sales tax holiday, back-to-school purchases, such as clothing, and other items as defined by state statutes, are exempt from sales tax for this time period only.

Why Travel to Iowa?

Unfortunately, at this time, Nebraska does not have a sales tax holiday for back-to-school purchases. Iowa’s Tax Free Holiday is this weekend, August 2nd and 3rd, and is good on clothing or footwear with a value of less than $100 per item. Please note, in Iowa, items such as athletic accessories and school supplies are not tax-free.
