Is There a Sales Tax Holiday for Genealogy?
Here in the United States, each August is “Back to School” season which means lots of sales on school clothing, school supplies and more!
Many states have instituted a “sales tax holiday” as an incentive to shop within your state and the savings to the consumer can be significant! Of course, not all items “qualify” for these savings and there is a question as to whether or not ONLINE purchases qualify. Well at Genealogy Bargains we’ve done our homework and here is what we can tell you:
Does Your State Have a Sales Tax Holiday?
In Illinois, over the 10 days, the rate will drop from 6.25% to 1.25%. Qualifying purchases include certain clothing and footwear with a retail selling price of less than $125 per item. Eligible school supplies items are not subject to the $125 threshold.
CHECK YOUR STATE’S REQUIREMENTS TO SEE WHICH ITEMS QUALIFY FOR THE SALES TAX HOLIDAY!
Can I Get a Sales Tax Break Shopping Online?
I’ve done my research both at the Illinois state level and on Amazon. Basically if you are logged in using an IP address (Internet Protocol address) located within your state and the purchases are delivered to an address within your state, the purchase SHOULD qualify. Click HERE to see Amazon’s statement on sales tax holidays.
