Good afternoon and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator from Joshua, Texas.
Today, I’d like to share with you the information that’s been passed down to us directly from Stampin’ Up! regarding the 2021 Tax Free Weekends.
Eleven states will be offering a sales tax holiday for school supplies during the months of July or August. Products that are eligible according to the statute include “items normally used by students in a standard classroom for educational purposes.” To see the names of participating states, products exempted from tax, and sales tax holiday dates, click here.
Please note that you must place your order with Stampin’ Up! during the tax holiday period in order to receive these items tax-free (which is midnight on the first day to midnight on the last day of the tax holiday). Also, keep in mind that this is a state sales tax holiday; the state statute may not apply to county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.
If you have customers who live in states who benefit from the sales tax holiday (yay!), be sure to give them a call and let them know.
Note: Georgia, Louisiana, and Wisconsin have suspended the sales tax holiday for this year.
If your state is one of the very lucky states that will be having their tax free weekend mid and end of July, please consider shopping for James Schoolhouse (our Heart of Stampin’ Up! Award Winner) and sending in just a few extra supplies to get those foster kids ready to go back to school! Together, we can Make A Difference!
Thank you so much for joining me. I hope that you’ll join me soon again for another edition. Until next time – Happy Stampin’ Everyone!
