Back to school 2022: How to save money with tax-free holidays

From books to clothing to electronics, back-to-school shopping is right around the corner.

Now with inflation hitting hard, parents are likely looking for a break wherever they can.

The good news is you can save with tax-free holidays.

17 states are offering tax-free holidays for school supplies, cutting sales tax ahead of the start of school.

To know when your respective state offers the tax-free holiday, check your local resources.

For other ways to save, check cashback apps such as Ibotta and Rakuten for deals.

Also look out for refurbished computers and electronics, buy from certified sellers, check return policies and compare shops.

If you buy qualifying items during these holidays, stores won't tack on sales tax at the register.
