Shoppers across Massachusetts are hitting the stores to take advantage of another summer tax-free weekend.
The 1-time tax break will apply to retail sales, but will exclude any single item priced higher than $2,500 on Saturday and Sunday. It also excludes vehicles, motor boats, tobacco, meals and utilities.
The state sales tax is 6.25%. Some stores are adding extra savings on top of the weekend tax cut to lure in additional shoppers.
Another possible lure for shoppers will come in the form of expected nice weather.
Sales-tax holiday weekends have become something of a tradition in Massachusetts during the dog days of summers as lawmakers hope to give store owners and consumers a boost during a typically sluggish shopping season.
