SPRINGFIELD, IL – Facing an upcoming bill deadline, the Illinois Senate spent much of the week approving legislation and amending bills, including a measure that would provide financial relief for Illinois families through the creation of an annual sales tax holiday on school supplies and clothing, according to State Senator Pamela J. Althoff (R-Crystal Lake).  


Senate Bill 2892 creates an annual sales tax holiday on school supplies, shoes and apparel that would begin the first Friday in August and continue through the following Sunday. The measure seeks to help parents afford the increasing cost of school-related supplies and clothing, and would apply to clothing or shoes that cost $200 or less and computers $3,000 and less. The bill is now awaiting consideration by the House of Representatives.
