Tax free weekend today through Sunday for back to school

Missouri’s annual weekend to buy back-to-school items – minus the sales tax – is underway today through Sunday. This time around, Missouri retailers will not be charging state AND local sales taxes on certain school supplies, computers, clothing, diapers, and shoes. That means no state sales tax, no county sales tax, no municipal sales tax, and no special improvement district tax. And you do not have to be a Missouri resident or student to save. Some Missouri retailers may expand their business hours for this weekend. Locally, Laclede County and the city of Lebanon will participate with no county or city taxes in addition to the state.
