Mississippians, go out and buy yourself a firearm, a bow, ammunition or other hunting supplies this weekend and you won’t have to pay the state’s 7 percent sales tax!
The reason? Well, seeing that many Mississippians were traveling over to Louisiana to take advantage of its annual tax free holiday, lawmakers in The Magnolia State decided to follow suit. And last year, Gov. Phil Bryant signed into law the ‘Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday.’
“With dove season underway and deer season less than a month away, this weekend is a great time to take advantage of this tax break,” said Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves.
“Mississippians love to hunt, and this sales tax holiday makes it a little less expensive to enjoy the outdoors. I’m thankful for the support of the National Rifle Association on this effort and many other strong Second Amendment protections we’ve recently passed,” Lt. Gov. Reeves continued.
The holiday started at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and continues on through midnight on Sunday.
