Mississippi's Sales Tax Holiday Begins Soon

Jackson -

Mississippi's annual sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. July 26 and ends at midnight on July 27.            

For retailers, it is one of their busiest times of the year.            

As in previous years, shoppers can save 7 percent on certain clothes and shoes that cost $100 or less per item.            

Sixteen other states have sales-tax holidays, with some going beyond back-to-school products to include tax exemptions for hunting and hurricane seasons and energy-efficient appliances and equipment.            

Alabama's eighth annual sales tax holiday for school-related items runs Aug. 2-4 and allows savings on certain school supplies, computers, books and clothing.            

Louisiana's sales tax holiday will be Aug. 2-3 and includes most all personal property - electronics, school supplies, clothes and the like - but excludes vehicles and meals.
