Iowa's annual Sales Tax Holiday will be held this weekend as most purchases of clothing and footwear will be sales tax-free.
Victoria Daniels of the Iowa Department of Revenue, says there is a specific purpose to the two-day tax holiday, which runs Friday and Saturday:
This is the 14th year for the Sales Tax Holiday in Iowa. Daniels says the two days are favored by both shoppers and merchants.
Daniels says items eligible for the sales tax-free weekend need to fall under the category of clothing and footwear and must also meet certain definitions.
Some examples include tennis shoes -- which could be worn for gym class or for everyday -- those would qualify for the exemption, but football cleats would not qualify.
