Three Day Tennessee Tax Holiday Begins Friday

Aug 1, 2013


MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  The State of Tennessee’s 8th annual shopping tax holiday begins Friday.

No state sales tax will be charged this weekend on clothing, school supplies or computers.

There are restrictions. The clothing and school supplies must be valued at $100 per item or less. Computers must be $1600 or less.

Brandy Camperlino has a son starting kindergarten this year at Thurman Francis Elementary in Smyrna.

“We’re going to look for school supplies. We’re gonna’ go list in hand and hopefully stay focused - hit some of the sales for clothing items.”

Camperlino says even a small break on back to school costs is appreciated.

“I still have a small child in daycare, which is very expensive, so any little bit that we can save is going to be very helpful to our budget.”

The State Department of Revenue says the tax break saves shoppers something between $8 and $10 million dollars each year.

The tax holiday begins Friday morning at 12:00 a.m. and continues through midnight Sunday.
