State May Extend Sales Tax Holiday

Governor Charlie Baker is proposing expanding the state's annual two-day sales tax holiday to a two-month event this year to supercharge the post-pandemic economy.

In comments Wednesday, he said the state can afford a 60-day period free of most sales taxes thanks to tax revenues that are almost 15% above projections as well as an infusion of federal coronavirus relief funds.

He estimated an August and September sales tax holiday would save consumers and businesses $900,000.

The state has a 6.25% sales tax on most goods and services. The proposal needs legislative approval.
