(DES MOINES) – Today Republicans in the Iowa House released information regarding the annual Iowa Sales Tax Holiday.  This year beginning at 12:01am, August 1, 2014 through midnight August 2, 2014, no sales tax will be collected on clothing or footwear having a selling price of less than $100.00 per item.

All businesses open today and tomorrow 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 Speaker Kraig Paulsen.
