A couple of Homeland stores had an unexpected promotion today: Tax-Free Day. “Save more than 7 percent,” they said. Since both the participating stores were in Oklahoma City limits, the savings would presumably be 8.375 percent. I checked a few items and didn’t spot any price increases, and the register tape from the self-checkout indeed reports 0.00 tax, so I guess they meant it.
Of course, they’re going to have to remit something to the Tax Commission anyway, so it’s not really “tax-free,” but anything that saves me $3.50 on a forty-dollar grocery run is something to be encouraged.
