Updated Apple page promotes taking advantage of US tax holidays

updated 11:42 am EDT, Wed July 30, 2014

Eligible products may vary from state to state

Apple has updated a promotional page to let shoppers know about tax holidays coming up in nine US states between August 1st and the 3rd. The states include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Tennessee. During the holidays, Apple has said it will drop sales tax charges for qualifying purchases made online or at retail. Although taxes will still appear during online checkouts, proper totals should appear in email confirmations.

Eligible products typically include iPads, Macs, and accessories, such as mice and keyboards bought alongside a Mac. Other products -- such as iPhones or AppleCare -- may also be tax-exempt, but that varies from state to state. The states also have different ceilings on tax-free purchases, ranging from $750 in Alabama and Florida to an infinite amount in South Carolina.

Apple mentions that taking advantage of the holidays won't exclude people from its ongoing Back to School promotion, which includes gift cards alongside Macs, iPhones, and iPads. Notably, Massachusetts has yet to set a definite date for its tax holiday, and North Carolina has opted out of the practice.

    The government will also cut services to pay for the 'tax break'.
