Tax Free Weekends
Head over here to see what your state includes in the Tax Free event, or see below.
Although having no sales tax doesn't seem like much, retailers actually plan sales around these dates! So yes in Oklahoma we can save that 8% or so on the tax, but we will see huge sales going. Stores also use this as a weekend to get rid of summer apparel, and local restaurants may even offer deals and coupons since they know people are out!
