Sales Tax Holidays by State 2011

Save money on back-to-school costs during the annual sales tax holidays. Use this list to see which states are participating, which items are eligible and state-by-state guidelines you need to know before you go shopping. Most states only have a weekend to take advantage of this opportunity, and for many it is this upcoming weekend!
