July 25, 2013
Mississippi's 2013 Sales Tax Holiday begins Friday, July 26 and runs through Saturday, July 27. During that time, shoppers will not need to pay the state's 7 percent sales tax on eligible items of clothing—from athletic socks to workout gear.
In general, individual items of clothing and shoes that sell for less than $100 are eligible for the tax discount. Accessories, most sports-related items and any article priced at $100 or higher are not eligible.
