Back-to-school shoppers can save some extra cash if they take advantage of Missouri’s annual sales tax holiday on the weekend of Aug. 5-7.

During the annual back-to-school sales tax holiday, the state’s 4.225 percent sales tax will not be collected throughout the state on clothes, computers and school supplies.
