Illinois will not participate in sales tax holiday

(KTRS) – Shoppers in Missouri and Iowa will enjoy a sales tax holiday for back-to-school shopping this weekend, but the same discount will not be offered in Illinois.

The last time Illinois had a tax holiday was in 2010. Retail groups say the event provides a boost in sales, but opponents say the tax holiday is bad; the state loses revenue on sales for the day.

Missouri’s tax holiday begins today and runs through Sunday.
