(Jefferson City)–Despite uncertainty about how classes will be conducted when school starts up next month, the state of Missouri is going ahead with plans to have the Back to School Sales Tax Holiday next month. The State Sales Tax will not be collected on back-to-school clothing, school supplies, computer software, personal computers, computer peripheral devices, and graphing calculators when purchased from 12:01 a-m August 7th to midnight on Sunday, August 9th. This is limited to clothing articles having a taxable value of $100 or less, school supplies not exceeding $50 per purchase, computer software with a taxable value of $350 or less, personal computers not exceeding $1500, computer peripheral devices not exceeding $1500, and graphing calculators not exceeding $150. City and county sales taxes will not be collected as well, except in communities and counties that have opted out of the sales tax holiday. In this area, you will still have to pay the county sales tax in Pulaski, Phelps, Camden, and Texas Counties and will have to pay the city sales tax in Waynesville, Eldon, Licking, and Houston during the Back to School Sales Tax Holiday.
