Apple promoting upcoming tax holidays in several states

Apple is promoting a group of upcoming tax holidays in ten U.S. States, asking potential customers to buy Apple products during the holiday if they live in one of these states. The tax holidays allows residents of these states to buy certain items without being charged sales tax. Apple is promoting tax holidays in the following states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Customers can take advantage of the holiday through Apple's Online store, according to Apple:

When you buy from the Apple Online Store, sales tax will appear in your cart and during the checkout process. The correct no-tax amount will appear when you receive your email order confirmation.

Each state has different qualifications for what products are tax exempt during these holidays. Louisiana, for instance, has no limit on the items you can purchase as long as each purchase is $2500 or less. Other states are more restrictive, limiting things like the kind of accessories you can buy without tax. Apple has links to each state's restrictions on their promotion page.
