If you’ve got kids, or maybe you’re getting ready to go back to college, this weekend is the tax free weekend!

Here’s what qualifies:

  • Clothes that have a taxable value of $100 or less.
  • School supplies – not exceeding $50 per purchase.
  • Computer software with a taxable value of $350 or less.
  • Personal computers at $1,500 or less.
  • Other computer devices like a mouse, keyboard, external disk drive that cost $1,500 or less.
  • And graphing calculators at $150 or less.


Missouri is one of only 16 states in the county offering tax-free back-to-school shopping.

According to the Missouri Department of Revenue, every store in Kansas City and the rest of the state will be part of Missouri’s tax-free weekend.

Municipalities within the state can no longer opt out of the sales tax after Senate Bill 153 was passed in 2021.

The Department of Revenue said tax-exempt items bought online also count toward the tax-free weekend. Items can be delivered after the weekend, and the transaction must be completed during August 4-6 and shipped to a Missouri address.
