Getting ready for the tax free holiday.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT)-- The annual tax-free shopping weekend is only a month away.
Preparations are underway. People we spoke to are planning their budget around it.

The tax free holiday applies to clothing, including shoes and diapers, under 100 dollars per item.

It also applies to school supplies under the 100 dollar cap, and computers under 1500 dollars.

You can also save on accessories like software and keyboards if sold as a bundle.

Simon malls tell us they will extend their hours to accommodate the expected increase in bargain hunters.

The exemptions on some items are tricky, including online shopping and layway.

For a specific breakdown on what is and is not included, and all the rest of the details, you can visit our web channel, volunteer t-v dot com.
