The 2021 Mississippi Sales Tax Holiday takes place between 12:01 A.M. Friday, July 30, 2021 and 12:00 Midnight Saturday, July 31, 2021.


Retailers will not collect sales tax on eligible items with a sales price of less than $100 that are purchased between 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 30th and 12-midnight on Saturday, July 31st.


The Sales Tax Holiday will apply statewide to all consumer purchases of clothing, footwear, and school supplies with sales prices of less than $100.00 per article during the Sales Tax Holiday. The Sales Tax Holiday applies to each eligible item selling for less than $100.00, regardless of how many items are sold at the same time.


Retailers may offer store discounts and store coupons to reduce the price of an eligible item to less than $100.00 in order to qualify for the holiday.


Sales of eligible items that were placed or ordered by mail, telephone, or the internet are not subject to Sales Tax if the purchaser orders and pays for the items during the Sales Tax Holiday and the items are less than the $100.00 threshold.
