Your guide to Iowa's sales tax holiday

School supplies that are $20 or less per item are eligible for the exemption, as are clothing and footwear that are less than $100 per item. There is a Sales Tax Holiday line included on the sales tax return, and any qualifying sales made during the Sales Tax Holiday are deducted as exemptions on the quarterly sales tax form.

"Our main focus is on the students going back to school", Vonna Titus, owner, said.

For instance, in Houston, the sales tax rate will be 3.375 percent - which is absent the state sales tax.

Nationally, the average family with children in elementary through high school is expected to spend about $687 on back-to-school supplies this year, according to data from the National Retail Federation.

"Ohio's sales tax holiday adds to that confidence by providing great bargains for everyone in the market for clothes, shoes or school materials", Gough said. While many tax holidays include school supplies such as pencils and notebooks, Iowa's does not.

A legislative analysis estimated the holiday period will reduce state revenue by $26.6 million and local government revenue by $6.8 million.
