Video: Tax Free Weekend Shopping

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – It’s Tax Free weekend in Mississippi and that means big savings on everything from school uniforms to a new pair of tennis shoes. The tax exemption is good on clothing and shoes that cost under 100 dollars. Jewelry, handbags, wallets, and backpacks do not qualify for the Sales Tax Holiday. Even if you didn’t make it to the mall this weekend, tax free clothing is still available. The Mississippi Sales tax rate is normally 7% and that could mean big savings. The sale ends tonight at midnight.
