Apple has detailed which of its products are eligible for the upcoming sales tax exemption in some US states. The states are Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Tax-free sales provide a limited-time opportunity to purchase certain Apple products online or at an Apple retail store without paying sales tax. Eligible products and price limits vary by state, with full details listed on the official Apple website. Apple says the tax savings may not appear at checkout but will reflect on the final receipt.
Depending on the state, eligible Apple products may include Macs, iPads, iPhones, or peripherals such as Apple Pencil and Studio Display. Florida’s sales tax exemption begins Monday and runs through August 7. As for other states in the U.S., the tax-free sales will commence in the first week of August. The Apple website provides a complete list of dates each state will commence the tax-free sales.
Multiple discounts will be available
The tax-free sales are especially beneficial to the student population, as the tax savings can be combined with Apple’s ongoing back-to-school season sale. This includes up to $150 in Apple Gift Cards for students purchasing an eligible Mac or iPad, and 20% off the AppleCare+ plan. Apple is also offering students educational discounts on specific purchases.
However, it is important to note that the tax-free sales is for a period of time. Those who make purchases within the eligible period will enjoy purchases without paying tax. This means that consumers will generally pay lower for a long list of Apple products. From today, you can enjoy the sales in Florida. Tenessee sales will commence on July 29th. The other states will commence their tax-free sales on the 5th or 6th of August. You can get more information about the tax-free sales on Apple’s official website.
