Stupid Taxes …
…take a hiatus
As was so eloquently relayed to me through my answering machine last night by â€śGov. Bill Richardson,â€ť Aug. 4-6 are the stateâ€™s tax-free days on school supplies. Many retail stores throughout the state are participating (though not all), and according to the guvâ€™s website, nontaxable items include (and price limits are per item):
Clothing and footwear $100 or less
School supplies such as pens and paper $15 or less that are typically used in a classroom setting
Computers $1,000 or less, as well as assorted computer equipment $500 or less.
So if youâ€™ve got a kid and would like to save some dough, or if you just need a new computer, hop on down to your favorite school supply store and ask if theyâ€™re participating.
Welcome back to class, kids.
