Tennessee’s 9th annual Sales Tax Holiday will begin at 12:01 a.m., Friday, Aug. 1, and end at 11:59 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 3.
The holiday will “stimulate sales while providing consumers some much needed sales tax relief,” District 17 State Sen. Mae Beavers said in a news release.
“This sales tax holiday has been a tremendous success,” she said. “The savings are not just for students. All citizens can take advantage of this weekend of sales tax savings on these selected items.”
During the designated three-day Sales Tax Holiday 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 or tablet computers with a price of $1,500 or less.
Clothing includes shirts, dresses, pants, coats, gloves, hats and caps, hosiery, neckties, belts, sneakers, shoes, uniforms and scarves.
School supplies include items used by a student in a course of study. It also includes binders, book bags, calculators, tape, chalk, crayons, erasers, folders, glue, pens, pencils, lunch boxes, notebooks, paper, ruler, and scissors.
“I always encourage everyone to shop in Wilson County. They should take advantage of this tax free weekend,” urged Lebanon Wilson Chamber of Commerce President and Chief Executive Officer Sue Vanatta.
There are numerous stores throughout Wilson County – in Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Watertown – where these items may be purchased.
