Tennessee’s sales tax holiday weekend is happening Friday, July 29 through Sunday, July 31. During this weekend clothing $100 or less, school supplies $100 or less and computers $1,500 or less are all tax free. If you can purchase school supplies through your school I highly recommend you do this as it’s so much easier and cheaper, too!

Back to school means back to work for school-aged kids!
