ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — Three St. Louis area malls are extending their hours for Missouri’s tax-free holiday weekend.
Several states hold back-to-school sales tax holidays, including Missouri.
It’s where shoppers are exempt from paying taxes on select items like school supplies, clothing, shoes and electronics such as laptops.
Missouri’s annual tax-free weekend is still on for next weekend.
Qualified items will be exempt from state sales tax of 4.225%
It starts on Aug. 7 at 12:01 a.m. and ends at 12:01 a.m. on Aug. 9.
According to a press release, Mid Rivers Mall, South County Center and West County Center will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Aug. 7 and Aug. 8.
The sales tax exemption is limited to:
- 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 – not to exceed $1,500
- Computer peripheral devices – not to exceed $1,500
- Graphing calculators – not to exceed $150
Below is the list from the Missouri Department of Revenue of cities that have opted out of the tax holiday, which means city sales tax will still be collected
While some school districts will do all virtual learning this fall, others plan to do a mix of in-person and virtual. Business Insider said most kids will still need a school supply refresh for the school year — whether it’s in-person or all virtual.
