For five years Tennessee shoppers have been given a sales tax free weekend in August to help families save money and get ready for the upcoming school year. This year will be no different.
The fifth annual Sales Tax Holiday is set for Friday, Aug. 6 through Sunday, Aug. 8. During these three days, shoppers can save almost 10 percent on tax-free clothing, school and art supplies and computer purchases.
“The annual Sales Tax Holiday was designed with Tennessee families in mind,” said Gov. Phil Bredesen. “The holiday provides much needed savings for all Tennessee shoppers and prepares children for success by making sure they start the first day of school properly equipped with items they need.”
The holiday begins Friday, August 6 at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday, August 8 at 11:59 p.m. During the designated three-day weekend, consumers will not pay state or local sales tax on select clothing with a price of $100 or less per item, school and art supplies with a price of $100 or less per item, and computers with a price of $1,500 or less.
