Save on School Supplies

Posted by Spring Trail PTO on Tuesday, July 20, 2010 Under: Exciting Offers & News
If you live in Illinois, don't do your back-to-school shopping too soon.  Illinois will have a sales tax holiday starting Aug. 6 and running through Aug. 15. During the holiday, the 5 % state portion of sales taxes collected at retail registers will be waived; while local government sales taxes will continue to collected.

Virtually all of the supplies that schools require children to have on the first day of school - paper, binders, pens, pencils, crayons, rulers, erasers, chalk, tape and glue - will be eligible for the reduced sales tax rate. Clothing that costs less than $100 per item, such as shoes, outerwear, uniforms, gloves, hats and mittens, is also eligible.
