Iowa’s sales tax holiday for clothing and footwear — when purchases of less than $100 are exempt from the sales tax — is this Friday and Saturday. The holiday will include online purchases.

“One way that Iowans can keep the state’s economy going during these uncertain times is to support their local retailers this weekend by taking advantage of the tax-free weekend,” said Matt Everson, state director in Iowa for the National Federation of Independent Business.
