States with School Sales Tax Holiday

How much could you save this school year?

It's hard to believe back to school season is already in session, and yet here we are talking about school sales tax holidays.

If you're not familiar with this trend, certain states will suspend sales tax during a short window of time on specific items children need for the new school year (such as clothing, electronics and school supplies).
