KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- School starts in less than two weeks for many districts, which means it's time to stock up on school supplies--and this weekend in Missouri, all those supplies will be tax free.
Depending where you live in Missouri, there's no state, county or city sales tax. This applies to: clothing costing $100 or less, school supplies $50 or less, computer software under $350 dollars or less and computers that cost less than $3,500.
Marsha Parks has two sons in the Kansas City, Missouri Public School District and says the tax-free weekend will help tremendously.
"We have to buy school clothes, we have to get notebooks and everything," she said. "It's just really expensive. most of the time i spend like $400 to $500."
Dan Fogleman, the spokesperson for Walmart, calls this one of their busiest weekends of the year. Understandably so, as person can save a little more than $8 in tax for every $100 spent on school supplies.
"We know this is going to be a busy day. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see a lot of Kansas license plates in a Missouri parking lot as people come across the border to take advantage of that," he said.
"It's awesome. I really appreciate it because it really will save me a while lot this weekend," said Parks.
The event begins Friday at midnight and will run though Sunday.
