Illinois began a sales tax holiday on a number of items for shoppers Friday, but it’s not quite the same as the tax-free weekends many states have this time of year.
A dozen states are giving tax breaks on back-to-school shopping.
School supplies can be expensive, and if you need to save a few dollars, you might want to do your shopping this weekend.
The tax-free holiday ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday.
It was originally proposed to last a whole week.
Tax-free weekend in Texas is officially here, and shoppers are already taking advantage of the annual sales tax holiday.
Several school supply drives are being held this weekend, in addition to Virginia holding a sales tax-free holiday.
While the mall regularly closes at 8 p.m. the mall will be open until 9 p.m. for the holiday weekend.
Shoppers can get a little extra bang for their buck.
