Article

This summer, head to Macy’s to take advantage of your state’s tax-free shopping days and save a bundle. The bigger your purchase the more you’ll save, so tax-free days are a particularly good time to stock up on seasonal items and back-to-school fashion and backpacks. Tap into Macy’s vast assortment of top brands to make the most of your state’s summer tax holiday.

On state-designated tax-free shopping days, your purchases in approved categories are exempt from state and local sales taxes.
