Tax holiday for back-to-school shoppers throughout New Mexico


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Shoppers in New Mexico can expect to save this weekend on back-to-school purchases as the state conducts its annual tax holiday.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1K5aCBF ) that the tax-free weekend, which is now in its 11th year, will start on Friday at midnight and end on midnight Sunday. The holiday offers consumers a break from gross-receipts tax on school-related items.

In Albuquerque, shoppers will save about $7 of every $100 spent on qualifying items, which include clothing, shoes, computers and classroom supplies.

According to state estimates, the tax holiday saved New Mexicans $3.4 million during fiscal year 2014.
