Okla. parents turn out for tax-free weekend

TULSA - Oklahoma's tax-free weekend is underway, and parents are expected to spend about $26 billion this year getting ready to head back to school.

Shoppers can buy clothes and shoes priced less than $100 without paying sales tax.

Thousands will flock to stores throughout Green Country to get the 8.5 percent sales tax break.

The only items that qualify are clothing and shoes under a hundred dollars per transaction.

Not on the discount list are school supplies, accessories, and sporting goods.

“It's kind of the equivalent of Christmas traffic, it's going to be some lines and some waiting, but people are usually gracious in waiting to get their tax free items,” said Eskimo Joe’s Assistant Manager Nelda Hudson.

Tax-free weekend ends at midnight on Sunday.
