Tennessee's Tax Free Holiday August 1-3 2014

 

It's here! The Sales Tax holiday has arrived and now is the Tennessee Sales Tax holidaytime to save on all kinds of things!

What's Tax Free?

Clothing $100 or less

Each item of clothing must be priced under $100. This is not limited to students. All clothing will be sold tax free over the weekend, except for those items used for business or a trade.

This covers shoes, socks, ties, coats, gloves, and anything else you can think of.

 

School Supplies $100 or less

Each item must be priced at $100 or below. The Tn Tax Holiday site defines school supplies as those items used by a student in the course of a study. Of course the items don't have to be used by students. Anyone can purchase pens, paper, staplers, scissors etc.

 

Computers $1500 or less

The computers can be laptops, desktops or tablets as long as they are NOT purchased for use in a trade or business. It's important to note that exterior additions: including, but not limited to keyboards, mouse, speakers or software not already loaded on the computer, are NOT tax exempt.

Our tax free weekend is now underway and I know it is a big savings for those who have many kids to get ready for back to school. I will be heading out tomorrow on the hunt for shoes for my 7 year old twins. It all adds up! 

I hope those in Tennessee take advantage of this great program!

I heard that this month is a tax free school supply month in our state when I woke up this morning.

HI Connie...what a great deal.  To be able to buy a computer and all kinds of school supplies tax free can really make a big difference.
