You need to mark the weekend of April 27th through 29th on your calendar. According to state officials, itís been set aside for a special sales tax holiday on clothing, school supplies, and computers. Governor Phil Bredesen said the stateís first successful sales tax holiday was last fall, providing Tennessee families with valuable financial savings on clothing, school supplies and computers during the back-to-school shopping season. Bredesen said heís pleased to announce the General Assembly saw the opportunity to enact another special spring sales tax holiday to help parents save even more on their children's supplies.

Remember there's a $1500 limit. I'm not sure what happens if you buy a $2000 computer, is the first $1500 tax free, or is the whole $2000 taxed in that case? I'd have to look it up on the state website.

I got a chuckle the last time I looked at the website. If you buy a belt with a buckle, it's tax-free; if you just buy a buckle, it's taxable. Who in state government sits around deciding such minutia? "Why, the shoes are tax-free . . . but you've got to pay tax on those laces, buddy."

John, it says that it starts TOMORROW. You'll probably want to hold off on buying that computer until then.

I know that we will be out shopping tomorrow!

No, it start today as far as I know. That's what all the advertisers are saying at least. You know you can always trust advertisements . . .
