Hello, fellow Arkies! Excellent news for those of you waiting ’til the tax holiday! I just got off the phone with a representative at the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration. I asked about the upcoming sales tax holiday for select items that will be from 12:01 a.m. Saturday, August 6 and will end at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 7, and she gave me some great news.
If you are worried about crowds and lines in the stores, here is some relief: Online purchases are included!!! So you can shop anywhere online and as long as the shipping address is in the state of Arkansas, you will be exempt from sales tax.
Click here for a list of all items exempt from tax during the holiday. It also includes items that are NOT exempt.
That expands your shopping possibilities tremendously! Here are some great deals I’ve found for you to check out. Note that at least one of these expires Tuesday, so keep that in mind!
