After the fact
I saw in The Gazette where the state tax holiday for school sales was Aug. 7-9, which didn’t make sense to me. It is kind of silly, with Carroll County Schools starting Aug. 6, and everyone more than likely had supplies and clothes already for school. At least school could have waited until after this holiday or either the tax thing could have moved up a little since Carroll County School started Aug. 6. You defeat your purpose. You can’t wait until after school to start buying supplies.
