NO SALES TAX ON SCHOOL SUPPLIES!
I just learned that the state of Illinois has implemented a Holiday Sales Tax! If you buy school supplies and/or clothing during Aug 6th-16th, 2010 will will NOT have to pay a state sales tax on the items. Please see the PDF from the STATE for what items qualified and for more details! This is the first year that the state of Illinois has done something like this. Other states have been doing it for a few years.
