DES MOINES, Iowa (KCAU) – Ahead of Iowa’s annual tax-free weekend, the Iowa Department of Revenue is reminding residents what is eligible for the two-day event.
The exemption of sales tax is applied to eligible clothing under $100.
The Iowa Department of Revenue says that “clothing” does not include the following:
- Sporting equipment
- Swim fins
- Roller blades
- Any special clothing or footwear designed primarily for athletic activity or protective use and not usually considered appropriate for everyday wear.
Gift certificates are not taxable and items purchased using a gift certificate will qualify for the tax exemption. A gift certificate cannot be used to reduce the selling price of an item to under $100 in order for the item to qualify for the exemption.
Any businesses open on the two days are required to participate.
More information about the two-day event can be found on the Iowa Department of Revenue website.
Below is a list of items that are taxed and those that are eligible for the event.
