BOSTON (WPRI) — This weekend, shoppers in Massachusetts will be able to save money on purchases during the state’s tax-free holiday.

Every year, residents take advantage of the tax-free weekend by waiting to purchase more expensive items.

On Saturday and Sunday, shoppers statewide won’t have to pay the usual 6.25% sales tax on many different items.

All purchases must be for personal use only, according to the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. Businesses and corporations will still be taxed.

The Cardi Brothers told 12 News they have been speaking with customers who are specifically waiting for this weekend to buy higher-priced items.

Since they have stores in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses is offering a sale in both states.

“We have stores right on the border in Swansea and South Attleboro, then we are also on Route 2, and of course, our mattress stores are sprinkled throughout, so that way everyone saves,” Peter Cardi said.

“You don’t have to come all the way to Massachusetts or go all the way from Rhode Island, either way, you can shop at your local store,” he continued.

Not everything will be tax-free, however. Here’s a list of purchases that don’t qualify:

  • Meals
  • Motor vehicles
  • Motorboats
  • Telecommunications services
  • Gas
  • Steam
  • Electricity
  • Tobacco products
  • Marijuana or marijuana products
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Any single item that costs more than $2,500

Those who’d prefer to do their shopping from home are in luck. Any eligible purchases made online during the tax-free holiday will qualify, even if the items are delivered after the weekend is over.
