SHOP Sand Springs for Oklahoma’s Tax Free Weekend
Oklahoma’s tax free weekend is rapidly approaching.
That means everything is tax free, right?!
Commonly thought of as “everything I buy is tax free,” Oklahoma’s tax free weekend gives you the ability to buy certain clothes and shoes without taxes…but not everything you buy will be tax free.
Starting at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 3rd, and ending at midnight on Sunday, the exemption includes sales of any item of clothing or footwear that’s less than $100 per article.
Every store, both small and large, are subject to participation in Tax Free Weekend 2018, which exempts certain purchases from sales and use tax.  
There are exemptions, though. Any accessories, like jewelry, non prescription eyewear, handbags, wigs, hair pieces, wallets, purses, umbrellas, watches, luggage, cufflinks, hair bows, handkerchiefs, and other similar items ARE NOT TAX EXEMPT.
When the Oklahoma Tax Commission defines “an article of clothing” they mean things like aprons, athletic supports, baby receiving blankets, bathing suits and caps, beach capes and coats, belts and suspenders, boots, coats and jackets, costumes, diapers, ear muffs, footlets, formal wear, girdles, underwear, sandals, slippers, socks and stockings, neckties, formal wear, costumes and several others.
Rule  #1: If it’s not a direct item of clothing or a shoe, it’s NOT TAX EXEMPT.
Rule #2: If a single item is priced above $100 BEFORE TAX, it’s NOT TAX EXEMPT.
Clothing items that ARE NOT TAX FREE include things like belt buckles sold separately, costume masks sold separately, patches and emblems sold separately, sewing equipment and materials.
