TN Governor Signs Grocery Tax Cut
(Memphis) Shoppers welcomed the news of saving money on their grocery bill, no matter how small.
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam signed a bill into law lowering the state sales tax on groceries from 5.5% to 5.25%.
The .25% drop will equate to about 13 dollars a year saved on a family who spends $100 a week on groceries.
Still most shoppers welcome the news saying every little bit helps, and it adds up over the year.
The governor says the tax cut is part of a plan the state is executing to provide better customer service for less money.
