2016 Sales Tax Holiday


The annual sales tax holiday weekend, in which sales tax is exempt on school supplies, takes place August 5 - 7, but Cape Girardeau will not be participating in the exemption this year. Neighboring towns like Jackson and Sikeston, as well as St. Louis, will be taking part in the holiday.

The sales tax will be removed on items like clothing, school supplies, computer software, personal computers, computer peripheral devices, and graphing calculators.
