FULTON – Missouri residents have a chance to stock up on school supplies free of tax this weekend.
But not everywhere.
Tax-free weekend officially started at midnight Friday and runs through 11:59 p.m. 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,” according to the Missouri Department of Revenue’s website.
But there’s a catch. Certain municipalities are allowed to “opt out” of the holiday.
