The Season Of Back-To-School Spending is in full Swing

If you need a reason to go on a retail therapy binge this weekend, back-to-school buys are tax free in Missouri.

The state’s annual back-to-school sales tax holiday weekend is this Friday through Sunday for state AND local sales taxes on certain items.

Lindsey Davis, general manager of East Hills shopping center in St. Joseph, says don’t wait until the last minute to find your back-to-school items.

Some school supplies, computers, clothing, diapers, shoes, and other qualifying items are exempt from all sales taxes.
