This Holiday is Not Taxing!

NASHVILLE, TN — Tennessee’s sales tax holiday starts Friday at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday at 11:59 p.m., giving shoppers a chance to save nearly 10 percent on clothing, school supplies and computers.
A recent change in Tennessee law has moved the tax holiday to the last weekend of July instead of the first weekend of August.

The general rule is that the sales tax break applies to clothing, school and art supplies that cost $100 or less per item and computers that cost $1,500 or less. However, there are some exceptions – for instance, computer parts like keyboards and clothing accessories like handbags are still taxable.
