NASHVILLE, Tenn. – As students in Middle Tennessee headed back to the classroom this weekend, retailers geared up for this year’s tax-free holiday weekend.

This year's tax-free weekend began at 12:01 a.m. Friday and ends Sunday, August 9 at 11:59 p.m.

Computers and laptops, less than $1500, were included in the exemptions. However, items such as monitors, keyboards and scanners, will be taxed when sold by themselves. 

Clothing and school supplies that cost $100 or less were also included.

Many stores have extended business hours this weekend for the holiday.

Tennessee is not the only state holding the tax-free weekend. The mid-state is one of 18 states giving shoppers big deals this year. 

Last year, people saved about $10 million.

Friday, students in Rutherford and Williamson counties headed to class for the first time, while Metro held its first full day of school.
