What’s Bedford Thinking? Will you shop on the tax free holiday?

July 28, 2023

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts recently set the days for a sales tax holiday for Saturday, Aug. 12 and Sunday, Aug. 13.

The holiday covers most retail items for individual/personal use (not business) up to $2,500 and comes in time for back to school shopping.

Retailers are required to suspend sales taxes (including online sales and retailers) and many offer additional promotions, pre-orders, and incentive events for shoppers. It can be a good time to save some money on larger purchases such as computers/electronics and furniture.

Studies show that tax free weekends increase consumer spending, being a potential benefit to both retailers and consumers.
