IOWA'S SALES TAX HOLIDAY RUNS TODAY AND TOMORROW

August 01, 2008

Iowa's annual state sales tax holiday for "select clothing and footwear" runs today and tomorrow. The Department of Revenue Website gives some guidance:



"Clothing" means...

* any article of wearing apparel and typical footwear intended to be worn on or about the human body.

"Clothing" does not include...

* watches, watchbands, jewelry, umbrellas, handkerchiefs, sporting equipment, skis, swim fins, roller blades, skates, and any special clothing or footwear designed primarily for athletic activity or protective use and not usually considered appropriate for everyday wear.

Sure, sales tax holidays are bad tax policy. But we go to the fashion wars with the tax policy we have. So get your outfit together, and mark your calendar to go to South Carolina in November to get accessories during their new sales tax holiday for guns.
