Cape Girardeau County Commission Votes to Participate in Tax Holliday

The Cape Girardeau County Commission voted on Thursday to take part in the yearly Back to School Sales Tax Holiday in Missouri, Aug. 6-8. By state statute, qualifying purchases of clothing, school supplies and personal computers will be free from the state’s 4.225 percent sales tax. Counties and local municipalities have the choice of whether to join the state  in offering sales tax abatement during the Friday through Sunday period. Cape Girardeau County’s sales tax is 1.5 percent.
