Local malls and retailers are getting ready for crowds as this weekend’s state Sales Tax Holiday gets underway.
All day Friday and Saturday, you’ll save the seven percent sales tax on qualifying school supplies, clothing, and footwear throughout the entire state of Mississippi.
For every dollar you spend you will save seven cents. For every $100 you will save $7.
Here’s a list of what’s covered: school supplies including crayons, scissors, pens, pencils, and calculators are also covered this weekend as a new category.
Unlike other states’ Tax Free Holiday Weekends, electronics such as computers are not included in Mississippi’s Sales Tax Free purchases this weekend.
