Iowa Sales Tax Holiday
Iowa's Sales Tax holiday begins today. No sales tax will be collected on select clothing and footwear Friday and Saturday.
Than means a savings of up to 6 percent in Waukee and nearby West Des Moines. The exemption only applies to clothing and shoes that cost less than $100 per item. And some odd rules apply. Shoes without cleats are exempt, shoes with cleats are taxable.
Any store that is open from 12 a.m., Aug. 3 to 12 a.m., Aug. 5 is required to participate.
