Wisconsin’s Sales Tax Holiday Begins August 1st

(Madison) Wisconsin’s five-day sales tax holiday begins on August 1st. Shoppers in the state will not be charged local and state sales tax on items including clothing, computers and school supplies. There are some price limits on clothing and computers for the tax-free purchases. The sales tax holiday is aimed at families doing back-to-school shopping, but all taxpayers can make purchases without paying sales tax for the five-day period. The tax-free holiday also hopes to prevent Wisconsin families from going to neighboring states like Minnesota that do not charge sales tax on clothes.
