Tennesseans  can buy certain items without paying sales tax August 1 through August 3.

During these three days, Tennessee shoppers can save nearly 10 percent on clothing, school supplies, art supplies and computers.

“This holiday offers Tennesseans great savings on important back-to-school items, and I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity,” Governor Bill Haslam said.

People will not pay state or local sales tax on clothing, school and art supplies that cost less than $100 per item and computers that cost $1,500 or less.
