JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi's annual sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday and ends at midnight Saturday.
Mississippi retailers are gearing up for 1 of their busiest times of the year.
Department of Revenue spokeswoman Kathy Waterbury says nothing has changed from previous years in which shoppers can save 7% on certain clothes and shoes that cost $100 or less per item.
Three towns - Crenshaw, Enterprise and Heidelberg - are not participating in the sales tax holiday, according to the Revenue Department. Businesses in those towns will be charging the 7% sales tax.
Again, as in the past, school supplies and computers are not on the list of sales tax-free items.
The state's first sales tax holiday was in 2009.
