Illinois Sales Tax Holiday (& Other States, Too!)

Speaking of school (last night I posted some bookmarks using the First Day stamp set)...the state of Illinois is having a sales tax holiday of 5% from August 6 –15 for all school supplies. The holiday is only for 5%, so if the sales tax for your city is 8.75% (as it is for me here in Champaign), you’ll still be charged for 3.75% for state sales tax.

Click here to see the list of Stampin' Up! products that qualify for the sales tax discount. (This is a great time to get the markers and/or stock up on adhesive!) Please note that you must place your order with Stampin’ Up! during the tax holiday period (which starts TOMORROW, August 6th) in order to receive these items at the discounted tax rate.

Call or Email me with your order and I will pay the leftover sales tax! or 217-954-0232

Other states are also having sales tax holidays this month: Alabama (Aug 6-8), Florida (Aug 13-15), Louisiana (Aug 6-7), Missouri (Aug 6-8), New Mexico (Aug 6-8), North Carolina (Aug 6-8), South Carolina (Aug 6-8), Tennessee (Aug 6-8), Texas (Aug 20-22), Virginia (Aug 6-8). These states have no sales tax on school supplies during the dates indicated with some limitations. Contact me for more details.

The discounted tax will automatically figure when you place your order in my Online Store during the sales tax holiday.
