Sales Tax Holiday starts today

From Post staff reports

The State of Tennessees Annual Sales Tax Holiday kicks off at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 2, and ends Sunday, Aug. 4, at 11:59 p.m.

The idea behind the Sales Tax Holiday is to help parents as they purchase items needed by their children as they head back to school for the start of a new year.

Sales tax-free items include clothing up to $100 per item such as belts, caps, coats, dresses, gloves, hats, jackets, jeans, school uniforms, shirts, socks, shoes and underwear. Exempt clothing is defined as human-wearing apparel for general use. It does not include accessories such as jewelry, bags, sports or recreational equipment like baseball gloves.

School supplies are also tax-free and can include binders, backpacks, calculators, chalk, crayons, erasers, folders, lunch boxes, paper, pens, pencils, rules, paintbrushes and other art supplies. Specifically excluded items are instructional material, including reference books and school computer supplies like compact discs, printers and printer ink.

Computers with a purchase price of $1,500 or less are sales tax-free. The price applies to either a desktop or a laptop computer.

Any individual can make a tax-free purchase during the holiday. The holiday also includes purchases of qualified items sold via mail, telephone, e-mail or Internet if the customer orders and pays for the item and the retailer accepts the order during the holiday for immediate shipment.

For a complete listing of items eligible for purchase without paying the sales tax, visit www.tntaxholiday.com. You may also visit www.TN.gov/revenue or email salestax.holiday@TN.gov, or call (800) 342-1003 from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
