Mississippi’s now annual 2nd Amendment Tax-Free Weekend will take place from 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 25 to 12:00 Midnight on Sunday, August 27.
Created by the 2014 legislature, the language includes “hunting supplies are the following items when used for hunting: archery equipment, firearm and archery cases, firearm and archery accessories, hearing protection, holsters, belts and slings. The sale of general hunting supplies are not exempt. Hunting supplies does not include animals used for hunting.”
Only items paid for during the weekend are included — no layaway-type purchases are tax exemp. Items that are ordered and paid for during the weekend and delivered after the weekend are tax-exempt.
