BOS Tax Free Weekend!

Sat Aug 13, 2005 10:07 am

I will probably get an iPod mini. I need a new pair of shoes, so I will head over to the New Balance outlet store, also. Are clothes taxed here in MA?

Or you could do what I do on a regular basis when I'm in Massachusetts...just hop over the New Hampshire border...tax free every day!

Seriously though, this tax free weekend is not going to affect me at all. I'm hearing at some retail stores that it's expected to busier than Black Friday, but for those of us who are within striking distance of New Hampshire, it's not a big deal since I can't really remember the last time I bought an item worth more than $100 in Massachusetts...

That's the thing. I don't have a car when I'm up here. I have to MBTA everywhere.

An iPod mini? I thought these tax free holidays were intended for back-to-school supplies? What else is tax free in Boston?

Everything in MA is tax free this Saturday and Sunday only.

Wow that's awesome, everything is really tax free? I hope I get paid when I go back to work tomorrow.
