Apple on Monday began reminding folks that a number of states are holding sales tax holidays beginning on August 2nd. As the name implies, sales tax holidays enable consumers to purchase certain types of items and forgo having to pay sales tax. Come early August, 10 different states will hold sales tax holidays for varying lengths of time wherein certain Apple products will qualify..

The states where deals can be had include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Massachusetts, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Note that every state has its tax holiday begin on a different date, so make sure to check out Apple's website for more details.

Further, keep in mind not every item under the sun qualifies for the holiday sales tax exemption. You see, the intent of the sales tax holiday is to help subsidize back to school shopping, which is why computers in some states are included. So unfortunately, that big screen TV you've been eyeing at Best Buy doesn't qualify, which is a shame because there really is a lot of educational programming out there these days.

Kidding aside, it's worth noting that the sales tax exemption can be applied on top of Apple's current back to school promotion. Also note, per Apple's informational page, that when you purchase a qualified item from Apple's online retail store, the normally applicable sales tax will show up in your shopping cart. The "correct no-tax amount", however, will be evident upon receipt of your email purchase confirmation.
