Apple Lists Products Eligible for Upcoming Sales Tax Holidays in Nine U.S. States

Apple has detailed which of its products are eligible for upcoming sales tax holidays in select U.S. states, including Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Apple 2022 Sales Tax Holidays
Sales tax holidays provide a limited-time opportunity to purchase select Apple products online or in store without paying sales tax. Eligible products and price limits vary from state to state, with complete details outlined on Apple's website. Apple says tax savings may not appear during checkout, but will be reflected on the final receipt.

Depending on the state, eligible Apple products may include Macs, iPads, iPhones, and/or peripherals like the Apple Pencil and Studio Display.

Florida's sales tax holiday begins this Monday and runs through August 7, while many other states offer sales tax holidays in the first week of August. Apple's website provides a complete list of dates for each state's sales tax holiday.

Sales tax holidays are especially beneficial to students, as the tax savings can be combined with Apple's ongoing Back to School promotion, which offers students up to a $150 Apple gift card with the purchase of an eligible Mac or iPad, as well as 20% off AppleCare+ plans. Apple also offers students an educational discount on select purchases.

Sales tax holidays on select products in select states on select days?

Sounds like a bingo gimmick.

So who's eating the tax here? Is it Apple or the states?

As an outsider I'm not aware of what goes on in US politics.
We the people, who buy the product pay the sales tax. That sales tax goes to the state. They (apple) just have to collect the sales tax and give it back to the state. That sales tax goes to maintaining the state we live in so I am paying for it with every sales purchase. The state I live, allows a tax free purchase on anything up to $XXXX bucks, including ANY apple product UP to that price. For one weekend, it just means our state doesn't collect tax from us on any sales, not just at apple.

Not a gimmick, a lot of people save their big purchases on tax free holidays. And the limit applies to every transactional purchase. So you can buy up to $XXXX PER TRANSACTION TAX FREE (ie multiple macs up to $XXXX if you wanted, you just have to ring it up separately, but this only applies to my state)

Why would a state choose to forego revenue on a certain set of days per year?
It's to help families afford back-to-school necessities.

I got a feeling that a lot of people are going to use a VPN to make it look like they're in one of these states and just have it shipped back to their home.
Your billing address needs to be in that state I believe so a VPN wouldn't do much.
