• Certain school supplies with a sales price of $50 or less per item
• Learning aids and jigsaw puzzles with a sales price of $30 or less*
• Personal computers and certain computer-related accessories with a sales price of $1,500 or less, when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use
Among the allowed school supplies are the following: binders, calculators, colored pencils, crayons, pens, construction paper, lunch boxes, notebook filler paper, glue, paste, poster paper, rulers and scissors.
