Many stores across Arkansas saw very busy first weekends in August as many shoppers took advantage of sales tax savings during the state’s second annual back-to-school tax holiday August 4th and 5th. Clothing and footwear $100 and under, accessories $50 and under, and school supplies were all exempt from sales tax for this time. Retailers saw major increases in their sales, while local governments took a hit on their normal revenue intake. Even so, the state ended its last fiscal year with a nice surplus, so it appears that the holiday may be around to stay with the strong public support it generated once again.
