Tax-free weekend: Food & Food Ingredients

  • August 1, 2022 — August 31, 2022

Category: Culinary arts, food and Festivals, special events

This year, Tennessee has not one, but three tax free holidays! They range from clothing and school supplies to groceries and even gun safety equipment. Dates:

July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023: Gun Safes & Safety Equipment
August 1, 2022 – August 31, 2022: Food & Food Ingredients

Qualifying gun safes for the sales tax holiday have locking containers equipped with a padlock, key lock, combination lock or other device to store guns securely. This sales tax holiday runs until June 2023, so there is plenty of time to make your purchases.

The new grocery sales tax holiday is welcome especially with the rising cost of food. Best of all, this sales tax holiday will last the entire month of August. A good rule of thumb for this sales tax holiday is if you can find it in a grocery store, it’s included. However, alcoholic beverages, tobacco, candy, dietary supplements and prepared food will not be tax free. Keep in mind that food purchased at a “micro market or vending machine” is subject to sales tax. The state estimates this sales tax holiday will save Tennesseans more than $80 million.
