Oregon has a sales tax holiday from January 1 to December 31 every year.  Vancouver (WA) residents frequently cross the Columbia River into Portland (OR) to take advantage of this benefit.

Everyday is a holiday from Sales Tax in Alberta, as we have zero sales tax here....

Although we still have to pay 5% GST (goods & services tax) I am confident that IF we had a sales tax holiday it would be well recieved

Yes we do have the "tax holiday" in Florida. Of course there are certain limitations and unless I were to buy a computer(for personal use) or some other eligible bigger ticket item, I don't really see the benefit.

In Canada, sales tax holidays do not apply to GST, HST and QST.  I don't recall seeing sales tax holidays for the three provinces with PST but I have not tracked the PST in those provinces for sales tax holidays.
