Blog, Indirect Tax, ONESOURCE, Sales and Use Tax November 1, 2013


Are there any sales tax holidays coming for holiday shoppers?

Answer From Tyler Nelson of ONESOURCE Indirect Tax:

During the last quarter of the year, there are only the aforementioned energy sales tax holidays in Georgia & Virginia, and the few local jurisdictions in Alaska in October, and an upcoming energy star sales tax holiday coming up this weekend, from November 1st-3rd in North Carolina. Otherwise, the next sales tax holidays are currently slated to be in February; which will be a “Hurricane Preparedness” sales tax holiday for Alabama, and an “Energy Star” sales tax holiday for Maryland.
