It’s Mississippi Sales Tax Free Weekend
It’s officially Mississippi Sales Tax Free Weekend. That means today and tomorrow shoppers can hit the stores to pick up school supplies, clothing, and footwear.
Eligible items priced at $100 or less are subject to sales tax at the regular retail rate of seven percent.
For Edgewater Mall in Biloxi, this sales tax free weekend gives shoppers not only the opportunity to save on sales tax, but partake in other discounts that stores are offering.
For stores like Bella Rose Boutique, they’re stacking up the savings for shoppers with store wide discounts and it’s all hands-on deck for what they believe is going to be a very busy weekend. Bella Rose Boutique Sales Associate Jaidyn Sanders said, “We have everyone that works here in the store. We have all of our inventory out. We brought stuff from the back. We brought stuff from the warehouse. Everything is out that we have. Tomorrow is definitely going to be busier than today, but this is the busiest weekend we have all year.”
As a reminder, eligible items will be tax free from now until midnight July 31st.
