There are several different types of tax free weekend events in the U.S. Some apply to general merchandise, while others are limited to Energy Star products or hurricane preparedness. Most general sales tax holidays take place during August, to help parents save money on their kids' back-to-school shopping needs. Energy Star and emergency planning tax free events tend to take place at different times throughout the year. Most stores in the state will also have great sales during the tax free weekend.

**If your state does not sponsor a tax free weekend, consider driving to a nearby state that does. Alternatively, contact your local state representative to request that he or she initiate sales tax holiday legislation for your area.
