Sales tax holiday starts Friday | Business
Mississippi's annual sales tax holiday starts Friday at 12:01 a.m. and will last 48 hours until midnight on Saturday, July 28.
During the event, the sales tax is waived on specific items, according to the Mississippi Department of Revenue.
The items exempt from sales tax during the sales tax holiday period are identical to those items exempted the last three years. Clothing and footwear items that cost less than $100 per item, are exempt from sales tax during this period.
Accessories such as jewelry, handbags, wallets, watches, backpacks, and similar items do not qualify for the Sales Tax Holiday. Cleats and items worn in conjunction with an athletic or recreational activity are other sample items not eligible. School supplies and computers are not included.
A complete listing of eligible and non-eligible clothing and footwear items is available from the Department of Revenue.
