Sales Tax Holiday Weekend
August 13 & 14, 2022


This year’s Annual Sales Tax Holiday will be held on the weekend of August 13th and 14th, 2022.  The sales tax exemption applies for those two days to any retail purchase made in Massachusetts, both in-store and online, of $2,500 or less, with certain exceptions.

While the operation of the holiday weekend is expected to be very similar to that of previous years, members are encouraged to closely review these helpful FAQs from the MA Department of Revenue (DOR).  For more information, the specific rules governing the Sales Tax Holiday can be found in the DOR regulation, 830 CMR 64H.1.8: Sales Tax Holiday.
