The Department of Revenue reminds Tennesseans they can buy certain items without paying sales tax Friday, Aug. 7 through Sunday, Aug. 9.


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.

By law, Tennessee's annual sales tax holiday is held every year, beginning at 12:01 a.m. on the first Friday in August and ending at 11:59 p.m. the following Sunday night. This year, the sales tax holiday begins Friday, August 7 at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday, August 9 at 11:59 p.m.
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.

"We hope Tennessee shoppers will take advantage of the tax relief offered by this year's sales tax holiday," Revenue Commissioner Richard Roberts said
