Indiana Back-to-School Tax-Free Holiday

This petition had 15 supporters

Support a Tax-Free holiday in Indiana for Back-to-school needs. This Tax-Free Holiday would be a small way to assist Indiana families and boost retail sales in Indiana.

National Retail Federation says on average, parents of kids in grades K through 12 will spend $670 on school supplies this year.  That includes clothes, shoes, and electronics.  PLUS in Indiana -- public school "book rental" fees are typically $400+ per child -- and if you have a high school athlete or musician, it's another $40-100 not including personal equipment, tickets to games, team photos, and snack donations. School is very expensive -- even public school.
