Back to School section timed for Tax-Free Weekend

-A A +A

The Los Alamos Monitor will be producing a special section dubbed "Back to School" that will publish August 3.

The BTS section will include information about the upcoming school year from public schools officials, and it typically includes bus schedules and other news related to local schools.

BTS is timed to coincide with the state's tax-free weekend, which is slated for Aug. 5-7 this year. The tax-free event is designed to give parents a break from Gross Reciepts Tax for buying clothing, supplies, and even computers in gearing up to get children ready to return to school.

Given the timing, the Los Alamos Monitor's BTS section is the ideal venue for retailers to promote their tax-free sales events. The BTS section will be delivered to roughly 95 percent of households in Los Alamos County in a total market circulation (TMC) edition of the newspaper Aug. 3. The deadline for advertising in this year's BTS special section is Monday, July 25. More information can be obtained by calling the advertising department at 662-4185.

Details on what items are taxable and non-taxable during the tax-free weekend can be obtained here.
