July 20, 2023
NASHVILLE – State Senator Joey Hensley (R-Hohenwald) is encouraging local residents to take advantage of Tennessee’s upcoming sales tax holidays, set to begin July 28 with the state’s annual back-to-school tax-free weekend. A three-month-long suspension on grocery sales tax begins Aug. 1.
The sales tax holidays are part of successful legislative efforts in the General Assembly this year, supported by Hensley, to pass the largest tax cut in Tennessee history.
Sen. Hensley says the sales tax holidays are intended to provide relief to Tennesseans amid rising inflation and food costs.
