Take advantage of Tennessee’s “Tax Free Weekend”
NASHVILLE — The Department of Revenue reminds Tennesseans they can buy certain items without paying sales tax July 28 through July 30, 2017.
During these three days, Tennessee shoppers can save nearly 10 percent on clothing, school supplies and computers, as they prepare for the back-to-school season.
“This holiday offers Tennesseans great savings on important back-to-school items, and I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity,” Gov. Bill Haslam said.
During this weekend, consumers will not pay state or local sales tax on clothing, school and art supplies that cost $100 or less per item and computers that cost $1,500 or less.
