In 2014, the Mississippi Legislature created an annual tax break on firearms, ammunition, archery equipment and certain hunting supplies during the first full weekend of September. This year, state lawmakers passed House Bill 1687, moving the tax holiday to the last full weekend in August so that sportsmen can enjoy savings further in advance of going afield.
Here, Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves (R) encourages you to participate in 2016’s tax holiday by visiting Mississippi retailers this weekend (August 26-28) and stocking up on hunting and shooting supplies for the fall. A complete list of eligible and non-eligible items for this tax exemption, as determined by the Mississippi Department of Revenue, can be found here:
Thank you to all Mississippi state officials and lawmakers who continue to support this popular celebration of the Magnolia State’s commitment to our Second Amendment rights and the contributions sportsmen make to wildlife conservation!
