Local governments in New Yorkwere given the option of whether or not to participate.[4] Since then, the initiative has beenadopted by thirteen states. It commonly takes place as a form of tax-free weekend lastingFriday through Sunday, usually during a major shopping period for necessities, such as justbefore school starts. During that period, sales tax is not collected on selected items, such asclothing and school supplies. The items subject to the sales tax exemption may also berestricted by price (for example, clothing up to $100), but consumers are free to buyunlimited quantity of items.As with other sales taxes, visiting residents of non-participating states who purchase tax-free goods (holiday or not) may still have to pay "use tax" on their goods that they takehome.
