LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – This year’s back-to-school sales tax holiday in Arkansas is set for the first weekend in August, allowing consumers to save on clothing and school supplies.
The exemption applies to clothing and footwear priced at less than $100, clothing accessories and equipment that costs less than $50 and various school supplies. Computers and software are not included in the exemption.
The sales tax holiday starts at 12:01 a.m., Aug. 3, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 4.
The Department of Finance and Administration estimates the holiday will cost about $2 million in state revenue.
