Arkansas sales tax holiday this weekend

Arkansas sales tax holiday this weekend

The second-biggest spending season of the year, back-to-school shopping, is upon us, and a tax holiday is set to begin Saturday in Arkansas.

The tax holiday, which cuts state and local sales and use taxes on many items, begins at 12:01 a.m. Saturday in Arkansas. It will extend to midnight Sunday, Aug. 3.

Online sales made from Arkansas are included in the tax holiday, according to Tom Atchley, excise tax administrator for the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration. Act 757 of 2011 mandated the Arkansas sales tax holiday.
