2012 Tax Free Weekend

It's that time of year again: Tax Free Shopping. So, roll those pennies and head out to take advantage of your state's tax free shopping days.

Connecticut - August 19-25. Includes clothing under $300 per item and shoes under $300 per item.
Maryland - August 12-18. Includes clothing priced at $100 or less and footwear priced at $100 or less.
North Carolina - November 2-4. This is the Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday only!
Virginia - October 7-10. This is for qualifying Energy Star and WaterSense Qualified Products under $2,500 per product only!

Many states have their tax free shopping days early in the year, April/March. But, more and more, states are choosing to not have the tax free shopping as state budgets are shrinking.

Finally, be sure to do comparision shopping when doing your tax free shopping.

If your state isn't listed, check out a participating state near you if you live close enough/will be in the area anyway.

Happy bargain hunting!
