Tax-Free Holiday Weekend
The state of Massachusetts is giving consumers two days off from paying taxes on August 13 and 14. There’s a lot of fine print, but for the most part, any single item purchase under $2500 will be tax-free this weekend. The state did this last year as well and did see a decent increase in consumer activity. So if you’ve been eying that big screen TV, now may be the time to pull the trigger.
