Iowa's 2014 tax free shopping dates have not been released yet. However, based on last year's dates (shown below), it is likely that Iowa's tax free holiday will occur between August 1-2, 2014. This page will be updated once those dates are officially confirmed on Iowa's web site.

The state of Iowa is offering one tax free weekend event during 2013. It applies only to clothing and shoes and is intended to coincide with annual back-to-school shopping for families.

Iowa's Tax Free Weekend Event:

Iowa's Tax Free Weekend is scheduled for August 2-3, 2013. The tax-exempt savings applies only to:

  • Clothing under $100
  • Shoes under $100

Smart Shopping Tips for Iowa's Tax Free Weekend:

Using good common sense will help you save even more more during tax free weekend. For example, compare prices at several different stores and use coupons when you can.

 

In addition, be careful not to overspend just because the tax free weekend is going on in your area. The regular sales tax rate in Iowa is 6%, so that's how much money you'd be saving - along with your local sales tax, if applicable. By shopping around, and also using coupons, you might find that the items you're looking for are less expensive either before the tax free weekend or after it takes place.
