Arkansas' annual sales tax holiday is this weekend.

The sales tax holiday allows people to buy certain back-to-school supplies and clothing without paying sales tax.

The sales tax holiday runs all day Saturday and all day Sunday.

The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration has additional information about items that are exempt from sales tax this weekend available on its website.

The annual sales tax holiday is something we strongly supported at the Arkansas Legislature. It helps families save a little money as they buy supplies ahead of the school year.

 

And speaking of back-to-school, don't forget the deadline to file the Notice of Intent form is approaching quickly.

If you plan to home school your kids this year, you will want to file the Notice of Intent soon, if you have not already done so.

There are two ways to file the Notice of Intent:

1. You can submit the paper form to your local public school superintendent's office by mail or in-person.

2. You also have the option of filing the Notice of Intent electronically via the Department of Education's website.

Just go to the Arkansas Department of Education's website to learn more.

If you complete a paper copy of the Notice of Intent, please do not mail the form to the Education Alliance office or the Arkansas Department of Education.

Paper copies of the Notice of Intent need to go to your local public school superintendent's office.

If you have questions about filing the Notice of Intent form, please feel free to email us or give us a call at (501) 978-5503.
