Shop Tax Free In Tennessee The Last Weekend In July

Tennessee's 2019 Sales Tax Holiday Is July 26-28

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Tennessee’s once-a-year sales tax holiday weekend happens Friday, July 26, through Sunday, July 28.

During this holiday period, shoppers can save nearly 10 percent on more than 150 different items, including clothing, school supplies and computers, as students prepare for the back-to-school season.

State and local taxes will not be collected on exempt items that cost $100 or less per item and computers that cost $1,500 or less. For a full list of tax-exempt items, visit www.tntaxholiday.com.

The sales tax holiday weekend is for everyone, not just students or even just Tennesseans. Anyone who wants to shop in Tennessee during the last weekend of July will be eligible to save on sales tax.

"The sales tax holiday means hard-earned dollars go back into the hands of Tennessee families,” said Governor Bill Lee. “We encourage everyone to participate and take advantage of the savings during what can be an expensive time of year.”

Tennessee law provides for a sales tax holiday each year during the last weekend in July. This year, the sales tax holiday begins Friday, July 26, at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday, July 28, at 11:59 p.m.

“This is an important savings opportunity for everyone. We want to remind people about it because it only happens one weekend a year,” Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano said.
