Kids are still not out from school and lawmakers are already thinking about the fall as they discuss a back to school sales tax break. Right now it’s a step closer to approval in Colorado. The bill would give consumers sales tax breaks on school supplies and low-cost clothes. A Senate committee has approved this bill by a count of 4-3 but the measure faces another committee test. The bill did get passed the house and has the backing of many retailers. Some critics are quick to point out that this just a gimmick and would do little to help needy parents or the economy. If passed, the sales tax holiday would be the first weekend in Aug. but it would not actually take effect until 2014.
