During the three-day period, the following items are exempt from sales and use tax:

  • Clothing and footwear priced at $75 per item or less (including uniforms worn at several CCS schools);
  • School supplies priced at $20 per item or less such as pens, pencils, scissors, and paper; and 
  • School instructional material priced at $20 per item or less such as books, workbooks and study guides.
Families preparing to hit the stores for back-to-school purchases can find a list of suggested school supplies on their child’s school website, which can easily be found by downloading the CCS Mobile App or by logging on to
