MA Tax Holiday

If you are planning to make a big purchase in MA soon, STOP! (or at least drive up to sales tax free NH to make it)

The weekend of August 16th and 17th will be a Tax Holiday in Massachusetts.

This means that the 5% sales tax will be waived for most items bought in MA, provided it is under $2,500 and not an item classified as tobacco products, restaurant meals, utilities, or cars/boats.
