Introduced by Rep. Jim Glenn (D) on January 8, 2008 To exempt certain clothing items costing less than $100 each from state retail sales tax during an annual "sales tax holiday" beginning on the first Monday of August and ending on the following Sunday. The bill also exempts certain school supplies, not including computers, during the same period. The bill requires retailers to charge sales tax on items purchased with a manufacturer's coupon if the coupon lowers the item from above the $100 price threshold to below it. The bill requires retailers delivering items purchased during the sales tax holiday to combine shipping costs with purchase costs on a per item basis to determine if any price thresholds were exceeded and to cancel any exemptions accordingly.
