(DES MOINES) – Today Rep. Tom Sands (R-Wapello), Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, released information regarding the annual Iowa Sales Tax Holiday.  This year beginning at 12:01am, August 7, 2015 through midnight August 8, 2015, no sales tax will be collected on select clothing or footwear having a selling price of less than $100.00 per item.

All businesses open on August 7th and 8th are required to participate, though the holiday does not extend to Sunday.

“As the family budget is stretched thin, hopefully the tax free weekend relieves some burden on the hardworking taxpayers of Iowa,” said Rep. Sands.
