(WMC-TV) - This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from the Action News 5 Facebook page where people are all talking about this weekend's sales tax holiday in Mississippi.
Tennessee also has a sales tax holiday August 3-5. Several Mississippians were unhappy that their state's sales tax holiday was not more generous. We chose this comment from Jason Poe.
In his words:
"Hardly any school supplies are covered under the sales tax exemption and that stinks, considering the kindergarten list is like $110 all together. When I went to kindergarten, all I had to have was four folders with brads, pencils, crayons, a pencil box, scissors, large ruled tablet, glue, and a manila envelope. Now . . . Good lord."
