Tax resolution attorney Jeffrey T. Jones, founder of the Law Offices of Jeffrey T. Jones, and best-selling author of “Protect and Defend” encourages readers in states that participate to take advantage of what could possibly be one of the last tax-free shopping holidays.
Charleston, WV, August 10, 2016: Tax resolution specialist attorney Jeffrey T. Jones, founder of the Law Offices of Jeffrey T. Jones, and best-selling author of “Protect and Defend” has posted a new blog on his website entitled “Enjoy a Tax-Free Holiday Where and When You Can, While You Can.” The opportunity to shop for necessary clothing and back-to-school items without paying taxes is universally appealing. However, according to Mr. Jones this event may soon be a thing of the past.
Jones asks, “Do you know anyone who loves paying taxes, whether it’s federal income tax, state or local sales tax?” He adds, “Paying taxes is just one of those things we all must do. So when someone comes up with an opportunity for us not to pay taxes, even if for a day or two for specific items, it’s a cause for shopping and saving.”
“Back-to-school time is one of those periods,” says Jones, “when for a few days or a week in some instances, states give you an opportunity to purchase clothing and sometimes other items tax-free.” “However,” he adds, “many states have opted out of the tax-free holiday, and this year there are only 17 states participating.”
Jones quotes an AccountingToday.com article reporting that in some states, “the sales-tax holiday has become a bigger sales event than Black Friday weekend.” (http://www.accountingtoday.com/news/tax-practice/tax-free-back-to-school-shopping-over-as-states-cancel-reprieves-78865-1.html)
Jones advises, “If your state is one that will be holding a tax-free shopping holiday this year, or if you border a state that does, take advantage of the tax savings while you can.”
