Once again, the State of Wisconsin is giving back to the taxpayers of Wisconsin in the form of a sales tax holiday from 12:01AM on Wednesday, August 1st, 2018 through Sunday, August 5, 2018.
What does this mean to you? The following items that are normally subject to sales tax will not be during the sales tax holiday:
- Clothing, if the sales price of any single item is $75 or less
- Computers purchased for personal use, if the sales price of the computer is $750 or less
- School computer supplies purchased for personal use, if the sales price of any single item is $250 or less
- School supplies, if the sales price of any single item is $75 or less
This applies to items you buy in the store or online. Items purchased by mail, telephone, email, online, etc., qualify for exemption if the purchaser orders and pays for the item and the seller accepts the order for immediate shipment during the sales tax holiday, even if the delivery is made after the sales tax holiday. If an item is purchased prior to the sales tax holiday, the item does not qualify for exemption even if the item is delivered during the sales tax holiday.
