Sands Announces Sales Tax Holiday Weekend

Iowa House(DES MOINES) – Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Tom Sands of Wapello, released details regarding the annual Iowa Sales Tax Holiday.  This year beginning at 12:01am, August 2, 2013 through midnight August 3, 2013, no sales tax will be collected on clothing or footwear having a selling price of less than $100.00 per item.

All businesses open on August 2nd and 3rd are required to participate, though the holiday does not extend to Sunday.

“The tax free weekend serves as a good reminder that tax dollars belong to Iowans, not the government,” said Sands.
