It’s almost time for Missouri’s 2020 tax-free weekend.

The sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 7, and runs through Sunday, Aug. 9.

According to the Missouri Department of Revenue, certain back-to-school purchases are exempt from Missouri’s 4.225 percent sales tax for this time period only.

The sales tax exemption is limited to the following items and restrictions:

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 $1,500

Computer peripheral devices – not to exceed $1,500

Graphing calculators - not to exceed $150

Some cities will not participate in the 2020 sales tax holiday. City sales tax in these locations will still be collected on the sale of qualifying holiday items.
