The Tennessee Department of Revenue has announced the dates for the state's annual sales tax holiday.

Shoppers can save nearly 10 percent on more than 150 different items, including clothing, school supplies and computers, from 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 26, until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, July 28, according to a news release.

The holiday weekend isn't just for students and Tennesseans. Anyone who wants to shop in Tennessee during the last weekend of July will be eligible to save on sales tax.

"The sales tax holiday means hard-earned dollars go back into the hands of Tennessee families," Gov. Bill Lee said in the release. "We encourage everyone to participate and take advantage of the savings during what can be an expensive time of year."

State and local taxes will not be collected on exempt items that cost $100 or less per item or computers that cost $1,500 or less. A full list of tax-exempt items can be found at www.tntaxholiday.com.

Tennessee law provides for a sales tax holiday each year during the last weekend in July, according to the release.

"This is an important savings opportunity for everyone. We want to remind people about it because it only happens one weekend a year," Revenue Commissioner David Gerregano said in the release.
