Much better solution is to eliminate the tax and reduce the state budget accordingly.Larger businesses will just tell their IT department to make it happen on that days download when they open. Smaller ones will just hit a tax on/off toggle switch like they do when someone buys something tax exempt that is not programmed to their system, or if they have a tax exempt certificate.
Not going to happen, even if we vote it out, they will override that because we don't really know what is good for the state after all.Much better solution is to eliminate the tax and reduce the state budget accordingly.
$43,000,000,000. Really? We need to spend that much?
They are already complaining that this “holiday” COSTS THEM 38 million.If Massachusetts residents were smaht, they'd boycott this precious gift from their overlords and tell them to shove it that day. Then drive to NH and buy their shit.
But they won't.
IIRC, cell phones aren't exempt. So make a trip to NH instead.Have my eye on a used gun. Which I need like a hole in the head. My wife is looking to update her iPhone at the Apple Store in Braintree. It will be agony. If I go with her I get a cocktail and lunch at Davios. Not sure it's worth it though.
Thought it was services, but I'm no expert.IIRC, cell phones aren't exempt. So make a trip to NH instead.
Unsure how the state classifies buying a cell phone. Worth checking with the Apple store in that case.Thought it was services, but I'm no expert.
"The following do not qualify for the sales tax holiday exemption: all motor vehicles, motorboats, meals, telecommunications services, gas, steam, electricity, tobacco products and any single item whose price is in excess of $2,500."
Same here. We buy the bulk of our taxable goods in NH, including all firearms, ammo and accessories. We make it a complete day out as a family, including a nice dinner.Why participate in the scraps the the socialists throw to us in in MA when every day is a sales tax holiday in NH? In addition there will be hordes pushing and shoving to get the sales tax discount in MA making it a hassle compared to NH.
I shopped at five today.My plan is to stay the hell out of stores....The sheeple will be a swarming for their penance. I can buy tax free whenever I want online...
I needed a bathroom vanity & sink. Prime so no shipping. Tax free whatever so no tax. Smiled gently on COMM2A as the COMM2A shopping link no longer benefits them.Unlike last year EBay and Amazon aren't charging Mass tax this weekend as far as I can tell.
I expected somewhat of a shxt show......but it was actually better than usual.My plan is to stay the hell out of stores....The sheeple will be a swarming for their penance. I can buy tax free whenever I want online...
