What Will You Buy This Weekend?
Massachusetts is taking a holiday from its 6.25 percent sales tax this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, items for sale under $2500 will be free from tax, excluding restaurant meals and tobacco.
While Massachusetts is having a holiday from the 6.25 percent sales tax this weekend, will you buy something just because you don't have to pay sales tax?
Tobacco, restaurant meals and single items costing $2500 or more will still be taxed.
And, this begs the question: Do you tip on tax? I say "No." The husband says that I am "cheap."
