ABQ Uptown preps for tax free weekend

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Tax free weekend is upon us. That means a lot of you are heading out for all of the deals and steals as we all gear up for back-to-school season.

Travis Robinson with ABQ Uptown stopped by this morning with some ideas to keep in mind as you hit your favorite stores this weekend. From clothing to what’s going into their backpacks, you’ll want to make sure your kids are prepared as they head back into the classroom this fall.

ABQ Uptown is gearing up for the big weekend by offering sales, promotions and even events that are sure to enhance the shopping experience.

Travis does point out that most clothing, school supplies, and backpacks that are priced under $100 are exempt from sales and use taxes, which could save shoppers about $7 on every $100 they spend.
