2011 Tax Free Weekends
During the summer (usually in August) some states hold a tax-free weekend. Now the standards usually vary a little from state-to-state, but these weekends usually allow you to buy school supplies, clothes, and even some electronics completely tax free.
Like in Maryland, from August 14-20 any clothing or footwear purchase up to $100 will be tax free. Last year school supplies were included but are not this year.
You can check out the whole list of states that are participating here along with what items you can purchase and the maximum value of those purchases.
You can click on your state government's webpage for all the details as well as any/all exclusions to this. Since it is only July this could be subject to change in the next couple weeks, but keep it as a bookmark if your state is included so that you can keep track of any changes or additions.
