JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Mississippi's annual sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. July 26 and ends at midnight on July 27.

For retailers, it is one of their busiest times of the year.

As in previous years, shoppers can save 7 percent on certain clothes and shoes that cost $100 or less per item.

Sixteen other states have sales-tax holidays, with some going beyond back-to-school products to include tax exemptions for hunting and hurricane seasons and energy-efficient appliances and equipment.

Alabama's eighth annual sales tax holiday for school-related items runs Aug. 2-4 and allows savings on certain school supplies, computers, books and clothing.

Louisiana's sales tax holiday will be Aug. 2-3 and includes most all personal property – electronics, school supplies, clothes and the like – but excludes vehicles and meals.
