Sale Tax Holiday? Don’t Do Us Any Favors!

Hey great, another supposed sales tax holiday!

When is it? Well, maybe August 13-14, but we won’t really know because both the House and Senate need to vote on it.

Anyone here work in retail? My wife does. Furniture sales at Crate & Barrel.

Know how much business she’ll do between now and the 13th? None. Because everyone thinks they’ll get their tax break then.

Know what happens with scheduling between now and then? How about inventory? Chaos.

Simple question – why doesn’t some nitwit file this bill in JANUARY, so they can enact it by JUNE, and give everyone a good 4-6 weeks of PLANNING?

Because that would make way too much sense.

So now they say that it might be August 13-14. But it might not be. Who knows, and by when?
