Massachusetts tax-free weekend for 2013 is here this weekend, August 10-11. Here in Massachusetts we have one of the biggest savings during a state-wide tax-free weekend. The limit is $2,500 on almost any item. Start Christmas shopping for dad, buy his upcoming birthday present or better yet, buy him new power tools for no reason at all.
If the your spouse has been coveting a new lawn mower, snow blower, or chain saw, we have new power tools and the power tool parts he needs if DIY outdoor power equipment repair is on the agenda.
Massachusetts has a few exemptions for the tax free weekend, but you can get anything from a power washer, lawn mower, chain saw, or trimmer; just about any item you can think of under $2,500 without paying sales tax on it this weekend only.
Here is a little more information on the sales tax holiday:
Exemptions: Exemptions are vehicles, motor boats, tobacco, meals, utilities and anything with a price tag over $2,500.
Layaway: Layaway items don't qualify for this tax-free holiday.
Coupons, discounts and coupon codes: They are allowed and will be applied before the tax exemption is applied, which means if an item is over $2,500 and your discount or coupon brings the price below the $2,500, then the item is eligible for the tax-free purchase.
Bundled items: If you buy a lawn mower, trimmer as a package deal and it comes to over the $2,500 for the bundle package, it does not qualify as a tax-free purchase, even though it is two items, not one.
Exchanges: Any items exchanged after the tax-free weekend will maintain the tax-free price.
