Sales Tax Holiday For Clothing, Shoes Starts Friday
JACKSON – Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves reminds Mississippians that Friday marks the start of the sales tax weekend on clothing and shoes.
All day Friday and Saturday, consumers can take advantage of a tax break on shirts, pants, dresses and any other item of clothing in time for back-to-school shopping.
Items that cost less than $100 individually will not be subject to sales tax.
“This weekend is a chance for parents and grandparents to get a break for their wallet while getting children ready for a new school year,” Lt. Gov. Reeves said.
“While I support this sales tax holiday which provides relief to Mississippi pocketbooks, I also believe we ought to continue finding ways to provide permanent savings to our citizens.”
