Apple Lists Products Eligible for Upcoming U.S. Sales Tax-Free Holidays

Apple has listed products eligible for upcoming sales tax holidays in select U.S. states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Missouri, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Some other states will also be holding sales tax holidays, such as Massachusetts, New Mexico, and South Carolina, but they have yet to be added to Apple's list.

Apple 2023 Sales Tax Holidays
Sales tax holidays provide a limited-time opportunity to purchase select Apple products online or in stores without paying sales tax. Eligible products and price limits vary from state to state, with complete details outlined on Apple's website. Apple says tax savings may not appear during checkout, but will be reflected on the final receipt.

The tax-free holidays begin in late July to early August. Depending on the state, eligible Apple products may include Macs, iPads, iPhones, and/or accessories.

Sales tax holidays are especially beneficial to students, as the tax savings can be combined with Apple's ongoing Back to School promotion, which offers students up to a $150 Apple gift card with the purchase of an eligible Mac or iPad, as well as 20% off AppleCare+ plans. This is in addition to Apple's educational discounts on select products.

I can't believe I was dumb enough for even trying to check if California would be on the list of states.

I don't care which models are on sale, so long as I can run Windows XP and Outlook Express on VirtualBox.

I’m in a tax free state. I can buy the product for you and have it shipped to you…with a reasonable shipping & ‘convenience’ fee attached, of course. ?

Windows XP I get but nobody ever wanted to run Outlook Express.
Did anybody actually use Outlook Express?

We tried it for a while in the mid 90s but ended up going with Eudora, then eventually AOL’s client.

In other news, I’m old.
