Sales Tax Holiday Under Way In Tennessee

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -  The sales tax holiday is under way in Tennessee. It started at midnight Friday and runs until Sunday night.

Thousands of people will hit the stores looking to save money and that has businesses gearing up for a busy weekend.

Many stores will have extra employees on hand to handle the crowds. At the Target on Old Hickory Boulevard team leader Joy Yancey said they are ready to go.  

"So we'll have a lot of staff back here, ready to help our guest and create great experiences back here. We've already stocked the shelves and we're just looking for a great weekend," Yancey said.

There are some rules to keep in mind. If you're buying clothing, only items $100 or less will be tax free. The same limit is in place for school supplies and art supplies.  

The biggest savings comes when buying electronics. Computers less than $1,500 are tax exempt. Retailers like Walmart are running specials in conjunction with the tax-free weekend.

While computers are exempt, flash drives, printers, computer paper and ink are not.

Before heading out, it's important to determine if the deals are worth waiting for. For more information on what is and is not tax exempt click here.
