Back to School Sales Tax Holiday Begins Aug. 3 in Cedar Falls
A heads up on the sales tax holiday.
Iowa's Sales Tax holiday will soon be here. No sales tax will be collected on select clothing and footwear Aug. 3 and Aug. 4.
Than means a savings of up to 7 percent here in Black Hawk County. The exemption only applies to clothing and shoes that cost less than $100 per item. And some odd rules apply. Shoes without cleats are exempt, shoes with cleats are taxable.
Any store that is open from 12 a.m. Aug. 3 to 12 a.m. Aug. 5 has to participate.
If an item bought on the sales tax holiday is exchanged later the buyer will not have to pay taxes on the new item.
