Who likes to pay more than necessary for anything? I certainly don't, and I don't think I'm alone here.
One of the most frustrating things for me is sales tax. I understand that it goes to a good cause. But it can make things difficult when you're comparing prices.
Moreover, sales tax can be a burden on families with limited budgets. Well, lately, many states have been offering sales tax holidays. For certain periods, you don't pay state sales tax on certain purchases (but local taxes still apply).
There's a good chance that your state has a sales tax holiday. At today's Cool Site TaxAdmin, you'll see a list of states and the dates of their tax holidays. So don't miss it. It will be particularly helpful since back-to-school time is approaching rapidly.
Unfortunately, there aren't many states listed here. But, even if yours isn't, pass today's Cool Site onto friends and family. If they can save some money on taxes, they'll thank you for it!
