Campus to offer tax-free Apple products

By Michael McFall, Staff Writer

Students will get away with tax evasion Tuesday8212;sort of.

The U Campus Store is selling all of its Apple products, including MacBooks and iPods, to students, faculty and staff without charging them any retail tax at the register. The store is able to do so because it has made a deal with Apple8212;the company pays for the taxes to push more products, said Alex Parra, a manager in the store’s computer section.

“We’re the second university to ever do this,” Parra said.

This is the third year of the now annual tax-free day, which runs Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Originally created to give discounts to only faculty and staff, the store’s management opened up the deal to students last year.

Parra declined to say how much the store sells on the tax-free day, but the store’s managers order three times their usual inventory in preparation for it.
