Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday This Weekend

Missouri’s annual back-to-school sales tax holiday runs today through midnight Sunday, August 8th. During this time certain back-to-school purchases such as school supplies, computers, clothing and other qualifying items are exempt from state sales tax. In addition to the state sales tax, local sales tax will also be waived in the cities, counties and special tax districts that choose to participate. Assistant City Manager Ashley Young encourages you to shop Kirksville for the back-to-school sales tax holiday as shopping local helps the community and those who depend on the local economy.
