Sales Tax Holiday Next Month

7/22/2008 10:51:00 AM
According to the Metro, Governor Patrick has agreed to sign a bill this week to suspend the state sales tax for two days next month if the Legislature passes it. I've always wondered about these tax free weekends because people tend to go nuts shopping.

But from my point of view, it's only a 5% discount, I can get a better discount waiting for stuff to go on sale or shopping online. The only benefit to the tax free weekend that I can see is if you're buying something that never goes on sale. I have a friend who bought up half of Home Depot during the tax free weekend while he was renovating his house - that saved him some considerable money. Then the only other thing I can think of is perhaps Apple products since they rarely go on sale.

Back in TX, families did a lot of back-to-school clothing shopping during the the tax free weekends, but we don't have clothing tax to begin with.

What would you buy if the tax free weekend bill passes?
