Tennesseans Prepare for Sales Tax-Free Weekend


Tennessee's seventh annual sales tax holiday is this weekend. 

The holiday is intended to lessen school shopping expenses. The state Department of Revenue estimates this year's sales tax holiday will save Tennessee consumers some eight to ten million dollars. 

The holiday begins Friday morning and extends until Sunday night.

Tennessee shoppers traditionally pay a 7 percent sales tax on non-food goods. Tax free items this weekend will include clothing and school supplies costing $100 or less per item and computers costing less than $1,500 per item.
