SEEKONK, Mass. (WPRI) — A sales tax free weekend in Massachusetts continues on Sunday.
Retail items worth $2,500 or less won’t have the six-point two-five percent sales tax at the register Saturday and Sunday.
“It’s been a win for the state, a win for the businesses, a win for the customers, everybody wins,” said Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Partner Peter Cardi. “Tax free weekend always brings everybody out and it’s amazing the amount of people that have been in the store,” he continued.
12 News also spoke with several shoppers in Seekonk who say they’ll take whatever savings they can get.
“Any money that I can keep in my pocket is better than putting it in somebody else’s,” said Don Denham.
“It’s a big purchase buying a tablet or anything like that – it’s a couple thousand dollars, so any amount that I can save is great,” said Casey Michalowski.
However, many things don’t qualify for the exemption this weekend, including meals, alcohol, tobacco and gas.
You can purchase eligible products both in retail stores or online.
