  2. Wow! That is so interesting. How does that work I wonder? Does the store pay the tax? Interesting. Thanks for sharing!
     
  3. Too bad I don't need school supplies anymore. Maybe I can buy some clothes and separate them into stacks of 100 dollars each so I dont pay tax.
     
  4. They have this in Texas also, but it does not apply to school supplies or computers. The tax free weekend in Texas is always the first weekend in August. The stores do not pay the tax, no one does. This was designed to help the consumer get ready for back to school.
     
  5. The stores take the hit on the tax. A lot of the time, it's not a lot though, so, stores don't loose too much. :smile:
