Tennessee Hosts Tax-Free Shopping
Just in time for the start of a new school year, Tennessee is giving shoppers a tax break this weekend. During the three-day tax holiday, shoppers can save almost 10 percent on tax free clothing, school and art supplies and computer purchases.
Shoppers will not pay state or local sales tax on select clothing and school supplies with a price of $100 or less per item and computers with a price of $1,500 or less.
The three-day holiday runs until 11:59pm on Sunday.
The tax-free weekend was started in 2006. According to the state department of revenue, the annual event each August saves Tennesseans between $8 and $10 million in taxes.
