If you live in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, South Carolina, or Tennessee, you will soon have a limited opportunity to purchase certain Apple products without paying sales tax, thanks to sales tax holidays provided by those states. Apple has published a list of the states, their respective holidays (generally August 1st, 2nd, and 3rd), and where to find your nearest Apple Store. The tax holidays will also apply to online purchases made by residents of those states.favicon follow link
