Shoppers, retailers enjoy tax-free weekend in Massachusetts
BOSTON — Massachusetts shoppers are welcoming the state's first sales tax holiday in three years.
A law approved by the Legislature and signed by Republican Gov. Charlie Baker waives the state's 6.25 percent sales tax Saturday and Sunday on most things sold in retail stores.
Items excluded from the sales tax holiday include tobacco products, restaurant meals, motor vehicles and anything that costs more than $2,500.
