Tax Free Weekend in Missouri Starts Tomorrow

It's August and the stores are abuzz with back-to-school sales. Been looking at buying your youngun' a laptop for school? Or yourself? Just want to make the current deals even cheaper? Then read on to get the low-down on this annual tax-free weekend in the big MO.

Starting this Friday night at 12:01 a.m. through midnight on this Sunday, there will be no sales tax charged on certain back-to-school purchases including clothing, school supplies, computer and computer software. ( don't have to be in school to take advantage of this!)

The tax-free purchases that qualify include:
  • 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 $3,500
  • Computer Peripheral Devices – Not to exceed $3,500
There are NO limits on the amount you can purchase tax free and NO limits at a single retailer. However....if you are in the KC area, be careful because some of the surrounding communities such as North Kansas City, Claycomo, Platte City, Platte Woods, Oak Grove, and Smithville do not participate. For a complete list of participating counties and cities and additional details, check the Missouri Department of Revenue official website.
