Tax-free weekend on schedule

Hunters needing new guns, bows or ammunition can save about 7% on their purchases if they stock up during the three-day “Second Amendment Tax Free Holiday” scheduled for Aug. 30-Sept. 1. Certain purchases will be exempt from state sales tax at hundreds of stores statewide.

For the purposes of this holiday, hunting supplies are defined as archery equipment, firearms, firearm and archery cases, firearm and archery accessories, hearing protection, holsters, belts and slings.

General hunting supplies, such as clothing, shoes, tree stands, calls and dogs/dog food, are not exempt from taxes. For a complete list of exempt and non-exempt items, visit the Mississippi Department of Revenue online at
