Tax free weekend

Is tax free shopping the first weekend in August? Looking for some great back to school deals for my boys!

Here's the link to the official info:

It is the first Friday through Sunday in August.

HOWEVER, cities can opt out of participating. They may decide to forego collecting state taxes but will still collect city and county taxes -- that is usually the case in Branson and Taney County.

That is the case in Springfield, Nixa and Ozark too, although their city tax is lower than Branson's.

We were there during this weekend a few times several hearts ago and while the city did opt out many of the stores at the malls were discounting things equal to the tax and calling it tax free. People were going nuts to save 8 or 9 percent.
