Mass. could get rid of sales tax holiday this year

Some state officials are thinking of getting rid of the Massachusetts sales tax holiday this year.

This is because of a $750 Million budget gap.

The tax-break allows shoppers to avoid paying the 6.25 percent sales tax on certain items.

The Department of Revenue says the state lost around $26 Million in revenue because of the sales tax holiday last year.

The last time there wasn’t a sales tax holiday was in 2009.
