The holidays are quickly approaching and a lot of people are waiting for those Black Friday sales to buy those wanted toys, electronics, equipment, and other gadgets – all of which are usually subject to sales tax. But clothing is also a popular purchase during the holidays and many States offer sales tax exemptions on clothing such as:
There is no New York State or New York City sales tax on clothing items costing less than $110.
In Massachusetts, there is no sales tax on clothing costing $175 or less. For items that cost more than $175, sales tax is only due on the amount over $175 per item.
Minnesota and New Jersey have no sales tax on all clothing items except for clothing accessories, fur clothing, sports apparel and equipment, in Minnesota, protective equipment and clothing.
The State of Pennsylvania exempts all clothing sales from sales tax except for formal wear, sporting equipment, and anything made with or in imitation of fur.
In Rhode Island, there is no sales tax on clothing costing $250 or less. On a clothing item costing more than $250, sales tax is only due on the amount over $250.
And of course, there are those four states that have no sales tax at all – so not only is there no sales tax on clothing, there’s no sales tax on all purchases. The four states with no sales tax are Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon.
So, what should you take away from this article? Buy your kids clothes for Christmas to save that sales tax!
