Residents in Iowa, Nebraska taking advantage of tax holiday

Posted: Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Residents in Iowa -- and neighboring Nebraska across the Missouri River -- are taking advantage of Iowa's sales tax holiday this weekend.

The annual sales tax holiday coincides with back-to-school shopping. It began Friday and wraps up Saturday.

The Iowa holiday allows shoppers to buy select clothing and footwear priced at less than $100 without paying sales tax or local option taxes. The two days are usually among the best of the year for Iowa retailers.

Retailers say the event draws thousands of people from Nebraska to the state for back-to-school shopping, too. Nebraska is one of 34 states that doesn't have a sales tax holiday.
