The state’s sales tax exemption on clothing purchases under $110 was fully reinstated on Sunday.

From October, 2010 to March, 2011, the exemption was repealed as the state sought to raise an additional 330-million dollars in revenue.

The exemption was phased back in for purchases of less than $55 from April of 2011 to last month."
