Wisconsin families, including Door and Kewaunee counties, can save a little money by doing their back-to-school shopping in the next few days. Now through August 5, consumers will not have to pay sales tax on school supplies, clothing, computers, and computer supplies. The Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday is part of tax exemption signed into law by Governor Scott Walker back in April. Any clothing or school supplies under $75 each as well as electronics $750 or less are included in the tax break. According to the National Retail Foundation, the average family spends more than $600 on school supplies for children in elementary through high school. The Sales Tax Holiday is estimated to save consumers a total of $14.8 million over the five days.
