The annual Missouri Sales Tax Holiday for school supplies runs from Friday through Sunday.
The sales tax holiday applies to state and local sales taxes when a local jurisdiction chooses to participate in the holiday. However, local jurisdictions can choose to not participate in the holiday if they enact an ordinance to not participate.
Eligible items include school supplies up to $50 per purchase, clothing up to $100, select computers up to $1,500, graphing calculators not to exceed $150, computer software with a taxable value of $350 or less and computer peripheral devices not to exceed $1,500.
Most accessories such as watches, jewelry, and scarves do not qualify for the tax savings. School supplies are limited to items normally used in a classroom.
Waynesville will not participate in the holiday and city taxes will be collected. Participating cities include St. Robert, Rolla and Lebanon. County taxes will be collected in Pulaski and Phelps counties, however, Laclede County will participate in the holiday.
