The second sales tax holiday weekend focuses on restaurant sales begins at 12:01 a.m. today and ends Sunday, August 9th, at 11:59 p.m.
This weekend will begin the 15th annual Sales Tax Holiday in Tennessee, though it will look a little different this year.
In June, the General Assembly approved an extension of the 2020 Sales Tax Holiday.
Not only did they double the price limits for tax-exempt items, but also included an additional weekend for the retail sale of food and drink at restaurants to be tax-exempt.
Citizens, restaurants, and retailers across our community have felt the economic hit from the COVID-19 pandemic, making this Sales Tax Holiday perhaps more important than ever before.
During this time the retail sale of food and drink by restaurants is exempt from sales tax.
