Michigan Bill Would Create ‘Tax Holiday’ for Back-to-School Shopping
If you listen carefully, you can hear all the childless-by-choice people complaining. Shhhhhh...ya hear it?
A new bill was introduced that would give a "tax holiday" on the third Saturday of August every single year for parents to buy back-to-school items with no added tax.
Needless to say, this would help teachers too, since we all know that teachers buy their own supplies nowadays. Some of the items that would be tax-exempt would include clothing, notebooks, pencils and personal computers.
As far as the items not included, there would be a price limit set.
Can't really argue with this, especially considering how much teachers spend on their own classrooms. What do you think?
