TRENTON, NJ (TSWT) – Good news for families and their children returning to school in the Garden State. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy on Wednesday announced a 10-day sales tax holiday for all back-to-school supplies.
“The sales tax exemption will cover a range of items used by our students – from kindergarten through college and university. From pens and pencils and notebooks to art supplies, textbooks or other study guides, new laptops, among so much more. We will also include in this vacation a lot of sports and recreational equipment that our students will need to perform at their best,” Murphy said.
The sales tax exemption will run from August 27 to September 5.
