Arkansas Sales Tax Holiday is Aug 6

The State of Arkansas will hold its sales tax holiday beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday August 6, 2011, and ending at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday August 7, 2011.  The sales tax holiday will allow shoppers the opportunity to purchase certain school supplies, school art supplies, school instructional materials, and clothing free of state and local sales or use tax.  All retailers are required to participate and may not charge tax on items that are legally tax-exempt during the Sales Tax Holiday.  The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce encourages shoppers to purchase locally to support our economy.
