The Missouri Department of Revenue released a statement saying the sales tax holiday begins on the first Friday in August and continues through the following Sunday.
The three-day holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 1, and runs through Sunday, August 3.
Certain back-to-school purchases, such as clothing, school supplies, computers, and other items as defined by the statute, are exempt from sales tax for this time period only.
Local store managers are spending this week prepping for the busy shopping days ahead.
??Yes, tax free weekend is this weekend. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so you save on 7.5% tax. We??ll have lots of great sales going on this weekend, so it's a big shopping weekend,?? says Maurices Store Manager, Rachael Ehrenhard.
