Junior Golf: Go Shopping: Many State Sales Tax Holidays Start Today

This Friday Flop Shot will be quick so you can get out the door. Seventeen states have some form of sales tax holiday and many start now.

We’re always looking for ways to save money and this weekend is special. Texas started its sales tax holiday many years ago and our family has always marked the date. Because of the aspect of statewide competition many stores will have special pricing during the sales tax holidays.

So you can save money 2 ways: no or reduced state sales tax and lower prices from the retailer. Each state has different rules so be sure to be aware of the details before you head out the door.

Sorry Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee, your tax relief has passed. It was in July. Here are the remaining states:

Arkansas: August 4-5

Connecticut: August 19-25

Florida: August 3-5

Iowa: August 3-4

Louisiana: August 3-4

Louisiana: September 7-9, mostly hunting items

Maryland: August 12-18

Mississippi: August 31-September 2, mostly hunting items

Missouri: August 3-5

New Mexico: August 3-5

Ohio: August 3-5

Oklahoma: August 3-5

South Carolina: August 3-5

Texas: August 10-12

Virginia: August 3-5

Wisconsin: August 1-5

I don’t believe it’s necessary to be a state’s resident to enjoy the savings. If you’re close to one of the states, look up the benefits and take a day trip and go shopping.

Generally clothing items less than $100 each are included. This is a great opportunity to get some new golf clothes for the fall. Some states, with qualifiers, include computers, shoes and even appliances. Be aware of the details.

And Amazon is supposedly honoring these dates. Shop from home!

See you on #1 tee looking sharp… Sam
