Every year jurisdictions all over the country have sales tax holiday periods for all types of different items. Often, these holidays are scheduled for near the end of the summer and usually include many types of school supplies, textbooks, some computer purchases and clothing. There are also sometimes sales tax holidays at other times of the year for things like hurricane and severe weather preparedness and even for purchases of weapons. Keeping up to date with when each sales tax holiday occurs is very difficult, especially if you do business in multiple jurisdictions and need to adjust your ERP for these dates.
