Sales tax holiday this weekend

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Many parents and students have waited all summer for the tax-free weekend to arrive.

The three-day tax holiday began at midnight Friday and will go through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday.

The period was created so that Tennessee families could get back-to-school essentials at a lower price.

Here are some items that are tax free this weekend:

  • Clothing and school supplies, as long as each item costs less than $100.
  • Computers, whether desktop, laptops or tablets, as long as they are priced less than $1,500. If accessories are bought separately - not bundled with the computer - tax will be charged.

Many stores are also offering big discounts on top of the tax savings or special offers like free layaway or student specials.

Some stores may also offer online only sales on the company's website.

Some companies may even offer price-matching in case you find a better deal at a competitor.
