The Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday kicks off today, but the savings won’t be as substantial as in years past. That’s due to the legislature’s decision to end state sales tax holidays in the final budget compromise from the special session. But local sales tax exemptions are still in effect.

The National Federation of Independent Business is encouraging people to shop local as the annual state sales tax holiday is expected to give small businesses a much needed shot in the arm. Retail items are exempt from the 4 percent state sales tax, up to 25-hundred dollars, Friday and Saturday. N-F-I-B State director Dawn Starns says this is great timing because the last few months a lot of small businesses have been suffering.
