Clothing products costing more than $100 or those offered as part of a package, however, are not eligible for the sales tax holiday in Tennessee.

If they cost $100 or less per item, school supplies like binders, backpacks, crayons, paper, and pens are also included in the sales tax holiday in Tennessee. The sale of bundled packages or individual school and art supplies that cost more than $100 will not be exempt from taxes.
