Preparing to shop for schools clothes and supplies? WAIT! Your state, or one near you, may be offering a tax holiday soon, a few days in which the sales tax on such items is waived. Why wouldn't you wait a little to save 6% or more?

North Carolina, for example, will drop sales tax on clothing, school supplies, computers, sports equipment and more from August 7-9. Louisiana broadens this to all tangible personal property, up to $2,500, and hurricane preparedness items up to an additional $1,500, on August 7-8.
