PREVIOUS STORY: Tennessee's sales tax holiday will be earlier this year than in previous years.

A 2016 law change means that the sales tax holiday will be held during the last weekend in July, instead of the first weekend in August.

From July 29 through July 31, Tennessee shoppers can save nearly 10% on clothing, school supplies and computers, as students prepare for the back-to-school.

Under the new law, Tennessee's annual sales tax holiday will be held beginning at 12:01 a.m. on the last Friday in July and end at 11:59 p.m. the following Sunday night. 

This year, the sales tax holiday begins Friday, July 29 at 12:01 a.m. and ends Sunday, July 31 at 11:59 p.m.

Other parts of the sales tax holiday have not changed;  consumers will not pay state or local sales tax on clothing, school and art supplies that cost $100 or less per item and computers that cost $1,500 or less.
