For ten days, the state of Illinois will charge just 1.25% in sales tax on school supplies and some clothing. The tax relief takes effect on Friday this week and ends on Sunday, August 14th. Outside of that period, the state sales tax will be the usual 6.25%. Ottawa Democratic St. Rep. Lance Yednock says families buying pencils, calculators, notebooks, and other school supplies should take advantage of it for inflation relief. The sales tax will also drop for clothing and shoes costing less than $125.
