School Supply Lists Online; Save on Sales Tax Holiday August 5-7

Most of the schools’ 2011-12 supply lists are now online and all will be available in time for Missouri's back-to-school sales tax holiday. The annual tax holiday will take place the weekend of Friday, August 5, through Sunday, August 7.

During the tax holiday weekend, certain back-to-school purchases such as clothing, school supplies and computers are exempt from state sales taxes. Participating cities will exempt their sales tax in addition to the state's portion (4.225%) on eligible items. For more details visit the Missouri Department of Revenue Web site.
