SUSSEX, Wis. (WLUC) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he expects the state's sales tax holiday this summer will draw in people from the U.P.
For the first time, Wisconsin is having a five-day sales tax exemption period for certain items. It's happening Aug. 1-5.
The tax holiday targets back to school shopping.
Here's what's exempt:
- Clothing, if the sales price of any single item is $75 or less
- A computer purchased by a consumer for the consumer's personal use, if the sales price of the computer is $750 or less
- School computer supplies purchased by the consumer for the consumer's personal use, if the sales price of any single item is $250 or less
- School supplies, if the sales price of any single item is $75 or less
"When they have a sales tax holiday you see a rush of people not only within state, you'll see people coming… I imagine there might be a few Yoopers coming down from Michigan to shop at a store like this and others across the state," Gov. Walker said.
Wisconsin's state sales tax is five percent.
