Tax free weekend ends at midnight Sunday

ST. LOUIS - It's that time of year again-- the Missouri statewide sales tax holiday! It's a great opportunity to save some cash as you prepare your family to head back to school.

From 12:01 a.m. Friday through midnight on Sunday, certain back-to-school purchases, such as school supplies, computers and clothes won't be charged sales tax.

These are the items that will be tax-exempt:

  • Clothing – any article having a taxable value of $100 or less
  • School supplies – not to exceed $50 per purchase
  • Computer software – taxable value of $350 or less
  • Personal computers (including tablets & iPads) – not to exceed $1,500
  • Computer peripheral devices – not to exceed $1,500
  • Graphing Calculators - not to exceed $150

Some of the items that WILL NOT be tax-exempt this weekend include cell phones, digital cameras, watches, headphones, furniture, CDs, DVDs, batteries or jewelry.

While there won't be state sales tax this weekend, dozens of cities and counties in the state have opted out of the tax-free holiday, so you will still be required to pay their local sales taxes. The state's portion of the sales tax is 4.225%.

City sales tax will still be collected on the sale of qualifying holiday items in these cities:
