The sales tax exemption is limited to:

School supplies – not to exceed $50 per purchase

Computer software – taxable value of $350 or less

Personal computers – not to exceed $3,500

In cities where the local municipality is holding a sales tax holiday in conjunction with the state program, the savings can be significant.  However, individual cities can elect not to participate. Either way, you can be assured of a savings of 4.225% which is the states portion of the sales tax and is available throughout the state of Missouri.

See for the actual details and a listing of participating municipalitites.

Now, get out there an pick up the supplies you need, every penny helps, – a penny saved is a penny earned.
