  • No sales tax on stuff this weekend!
If you need a new computer, new clothes or an iPad, this weekend is the time to buy. Missouri's back-to-school sales-tax holiday runs from Friday, August 3, through Sunday, August 5. No sales tax will be added to clothes, school supplies, computers and software.

The state Department of Revenue has all the rules and definitions of untaxed items. The thumbnail sketch of the holiday is this:

-Clothing — any article having a taxable value of $100 or less
-School supplies — not to exceed $50 per purchase
-Computer software — taxable value of $350 or less
-Personal computers — not to exceed $3,500
-Computer peripheral devices — not to exceed $3,500

Items that don't qualify include watches, watchbands, jewelry, handbags, handkerchiefs, umbrellas, scarves, ties, headbands, belt buckles, radios, CD players, headphones, sporting equipment, portable or desktop phones, copiers or other office equipment.

If you don't live in Jackson County or Kansas City, check if your city or county has opted out of the holiday.
