“This is a great opportunity for families to do back-to-school shopping and save some of their hard-earned money,” Martinez said. “The tax-free weekend is a win-win for both families and businesses. And most importantly, it helps our kids get back to school with more of the supplies they need to be prepared and ready to learn.”
Today through Sunday, retailers will not be required to collect gross receipts tax (GRT) from customers on certain back-to-school necessities, such as school supplies, computers and clothing.

School supplies such as pens, paper, and other classroom necessities $30 and under;
