Sales Tax Free Weekend
Mississippi will soon have its annual sales tax holiday, but this year there is more to celebrate.
School supplies are officially on the tax exemption list for the holiday, which takes place July 26th and 27th.
All clothing, footwear and school supplies under $100 can be purchased minus the seven percent sales tax.
Senator Chuck Younger co-authored the bill that passed last year and said it’s long overdue. Younger says if there’s a tax-exempt holiday for firearms, then there should be one to help parents and teachers with school supplies.
The Mississippi Department of Revenue website has a description of items that are eligible for the two-day tax break. You can find more about that by visiting here.
