BACK TO SCHOOL SALES TAX HOLIDAY: AUGUST 7TH -9TH

Due to Budget restraints the Mo DOR did not send out Back to School Sales tax holiday mailer this year. They are working with the Treasurers office and social media to get the word out this week. We will send their info when available. FYI, we have linked their pertinent webpage.

By state law, the sales tax holiday begins on the first Friday in August and continues through the following Sunday. Certain back-to-school purchases, such as clothing, school supplies, computers, and other items as defined by the statute, are exempt from sales tax for this time period only.

In 2020, the Sales Tax Holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 7, and runs through Sunday, August 9.

Information for cities, counties, and districts not participating in the 2020 Sales Tax Holiday, 2020 Rate Tables, and 2020 Rate Cards will be updated and posted prior to the start of the 2020 Sales Tax Holiday event.
