From Don't Mess With Taxes - view blog entries - visit this blog
August 9, 2020 at 2:27 am ET
Massachusetts never RSVPs to the sales tax holiday party, but always seem to show up just in time for the celebration. For the third straight year, Bay State lawmakers passed last-minute legislation creating a sales tax holiday. It's the ninth sales tax holiday in Massachusetts in the past 10 years. So Massachusetts shoppers can officially head to stores on Saturday, Aug. 10, and Sunday, Aug. 11, and pick up just about anything without having to pay sales tax as long as the items don't cost more than $2,500 apiece. Three more tax holidays on tap: Also being held, or starting, this weekend are tax holidays in Georgia, Texas and Maryland. Georgia is going the extra mile (or more) to make it easy for shoppers to get to their favorite stores for tax-free shopping on Friday, Aug. 9, and Saturday, Aug. 10. The Peach State's special no-sales-tax treatment applies to clothing and footwear priced at $100 or less; school supplies selling... ... (more)
