The state legislature has changed the date for TENNESSEE'S SALE TAX FREE WEEKEND, but the value remains the same. Freedom from sales tax on certain items begins at midnight when Friday, July 29th, rolls in. It continues until the midnight hour late Sunday, July 31st.
The great news is that the benefits remain the same. No sales tax on clothing, school and art supplies costing $100 or less per item; and no tax on computers that cost #1,500 or less.
And if you're trying to figure out when this major sales weekend began, it was back in 2007--when our economy had many challenges. It accomplished its goal of increasing business. In fact, Tennessee's Sales Tax Free Holiday has become so popular, legislators have decided to leave it alone.
