    Tennessee’s annual tax-free weekend is getting an upgrade. This year, there will be two opportunities.

    During the first weekend, beginning July 31 and ending August 2, residents will not have to pay sales tax on clothing costing less than $200 per item, school supplies costing less than $200 per item and computers and other qualifying electronic devices costing less than $3,000 per item. Exempt items being sold online are also eligible. All items must be purchased for personal use, not for business or trade purposes.

    The second weekend, August 7-9, will cover the retail sale of food and drink by restaurants and limited service restaurants.

    More information about exempt and non-exempt items is available on the Tennessee Department of Revenue’s website.
