Every State's Tax Free Weekend in 2021

BY: Christopher Mahar | Jun 8, 2021

States with Sales Tax Holidays 2021

Though it may seem like jumping the gun to be talking about back-to-school sales this early, planning out your shopping can really help when it comes to saving money. Major retailers like Target, Walmart, and Staples will plan their back-to-school sales around these tax holidays, so if you can wait to shop for school supplies you can get a double dose of savings. This year, 17 states are offering parents a little help with back-to-school tax-free weekends! (Here's where we got all of our data.) All the states on this list are offering a reprieve from sales taxes during the back-to-school shopping season, joining 5 other states that never collect any sales tax. Read on to see if your state is on the list for a sales tax holiday weekend.

The Groupon Coupons team also put together a comprehensive back-to-school checklist, so you can find the cutest school supplies and dorm decor. And don't worry, we know when all the best back-to-school sales are, so you won't pay too much either.
