Sales Tax Holiday!


Governor Phil Bredesen is visiting four counties today to remind Tennesseans of the state's first sales tax holiday this weekend. The holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 4, and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 6. Bredesen is making stops at retail outlets in Shelby, Hamilton, Washington and Knox counties.

“This weekend's first-ever sales tax holiday in Tennessee is the realization of one of the goals I set when I first took office,” Bredesen said. “The sales tax holiday underscores my commitment to education. The three-day holiday will provide tax savings for Tennessee's working families as they prepare for the school year ahead.” For more details, go here.
