For the shopoholics…. what states exempt clothes?

Posted by salestax on March 13, 2009

So, since my post on the 2009 sales tax holidays, I’ve had a lot of traffic from the website, 

To give more ammunition to the savings on buying clothes, the following is a list of states that exempt clothes altogether.  No waiting for a tax holiday. 

**Caveat:  These states don’t have sales tax on anything you buy: 

Alaska (except in certain towns),

Delaware, Montana,

New Hampshire,


(A.K.A to sales tax gurus as: the “NOMAD” states; or as those of us who are more crass: the “ODAMN” states.) 

No sales tax on clothing states:

CT:  Unless over $50 per article.

MA:  Unless over $175 per article.



NY State:  Unless over $110 per article (only certain cities allow this exemptions, so be prepared to pay local sales taxes).
