Massachusetts is in for a sales tax holiday.
Lawmakers were able to pass a bill this week, mandating a two-day break from paying sales tax later this month. This comes after two years of not getting the break.
On August 11th and 12th, purchases will not be taxed the usual six-point-25 percent, including online purchases in the Bay State.
However, meals, motor vehicles, boats and tobacco products will still be taxed.
Connecticut meantime devotes an entire week to the holiday which is geared to back to school shopping. That holiday is set for the week of August 19 to the 25th and includes clothes and footwear that are priced under 100 dollars.
