The following states kick off the tax holiday on Friday: Iowa, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. Arkansas will begin its tax holiday on Saturday, and Maryland will start on Sunday.  Florida is also in the middle of a 10-day tax holiday that runs through Tuesday.   How much do you spend each year on back-to-school shopping?  Should clothing and school supplies be tax-free year round?
