Tax Holiday Approved - 8/16

7/23/2008 01:39:00 AM
Looks like the tax holiday (here) was approved. It's gonna go down 8/16-8/17.

By a 139-15 vote, the House of Representatives agreed to withhold the state's 5 percent sales tax from items costing up to $2,500 that are sold during the weekend of Aug. 16-17. Boats, cars and meals and tobacco products are excluded, as are telecommunication services and gas, steam and electricity utilities.

Senators defeated a proposed amendment that would have made the holiday a permanent fixture, no longer subject to an annual debate.

Items up to $2500. Hmm ... well I do need a new laptop - if there's a good sale that weekend and it's also tax free that would be nice. Although it's always tax free when I shop online. Is alcohol usually taxed? I've never really paid attention to my receipts. Maybe that weekend will be a good time to add to my wine collection.

Then again isn't New Hampshire always sales tax free?
