School Supply Tax Break

School Supply Tax Break

Back-to-school supplies — from pencils to laptops — are set to be TAX-FREE in New Jersey for 10 days later this summer which will waive New Jersey’s 6.625% sales tax on all back-to-school supplies from Aug. 27 to Sept. 5.

The items that can be purchased tax-free will include a range of supplies, including pens, notebooks, art supplies, text books, computers, and computer supplies, as well as sports and recreational equipment and bicycle helmets, officials said. Clothing and shoes are already exempt from sales tax in New Jersey.

The holiday will apply to both online and in-person sales.
