The Tennessee Department of Revenue reminds shoppers that the 2009 Sales Tax Holiday is scheduled for this Friday, August 7 through Sunday, August 9. This annual weekend of savings provides three full days of tax breaks on clothing, school and art supplies, and computer purchases. Although the holiday provides savings for back-to-school purchases, anyone can take advantage of the savings this weekend.

The holiday begins Friday, August 7 at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday, August 9 at 11:59 p.m. During the designated three-day weekend, consumers will not pay state or local sales tax on select clothing with a price of $100 or less per item, school and art supplies with a price of $100 or less per item, and computers with a price of $1,500 or less. Visit for more information on the holiday.

In Alabama each county can decide if they want to participate in the sales tax holiday.  That’s because each county collects it’s sales tax on a county basis.  Both neighboring Cherokee County and DeKalb County in Alabama are participating in Alabama’s Sale Tax Holiday this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
