Today through Sunday, school-related items with a price tag of less than $100 are all tax-free. Yipee. Ken’s Man Shop is mixing things up with its own promotion and not charging taxes on Friday and Saturday purchases of more than $100. Go figure.
For the official list of non-taxed items, go to the state comptroller’s website here. Some of the more puzzling items that didn’t make the list include belt buckles sold separately from belts, loose buttons and zippers, and elastic ponytail holders. Apparently, proper fastening is not necessary for the school year. Noted.
