The state sales tax holiday began this morning (Friday) and runs through Saturday. Renee Mulvey, of the Iowa Department of Revenue says you can buy qualifying shoes and clothing tax free as long as each item costs under 100 dollars.
Mulvey says if a business is open and sells the items, they must participate in the sales tax holiday. She says there is some confusion as some states allow cities that don’t want to participate to opt out, but Mulvey says that’s not the case with Iowa.
Mulvey says any business or individual with questions about the holiday can find answers on-line.
Mulvey says they a lot of information, including lists of taxable and exempt clothing, and information on coupons and laying away clothing on the Department’s website .
This is the ninth annual sales tax holiday.
