Mississippi’s sales tax holiday is just around the corner.

Gov. Tate Reeves announced on Wednesday that the annual weekend where shoppers can buy goods without the pesky 7% tax tacked onto the bill will be held from Friday, July 12 through Sunday, July 14.

Senate Bill 2470, authored by Republican Walter Michel of Ridgeland, moved the annual holiday from the final weekend of July to the second weekend of the month. The legislation, which received unanimous support from both chambers in the capitol, also extended the holiday period for an extra day.

“We extended the holiday by an extra day so y’all can enjoy even more tax-free shopping in Mississippi,” Reeves wrote on X.

According to the Mississippi Department of Revenue, a sales tax holiday is a temporary period when sales taxes are not collected or paid on purchases of specific products and services. Sales tax is not due during the holiday on clothing, footwear, or school supplies if the sales price of a single item is less than $100.

The same applies to items that are purchased online — as long as they are ordered within the tax-free weekend period and the cost is under $100.

Mississippi moved the annual event back to the middle of the summer to accommodate parents buying school supplies for children in districts with modified calendars.
