One More Reason to Shop Local on Small Business Saturday Nov. 30: Tax-Free Holiday!



Last year, the 2018 New Mexico Legislature passed a law authorizing a one-day tax holiday that will remove state gross receipts taxes from a variety of retail products on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 30, also known as Small Business Saturday. The tax-free shopping on this day applied to both 2018 and 2019.

“The 24-hour consumer tax relief measure applies to small businesses of 10 or fewer employees only; franchises, no matter how small, are exempted. It covers a wide range of products, including clothing, sporting goods, artworks, musical instruments, and furniture – as long as the cost of any individual product doesn’t exceed $500,” said Ryn Herrmann, Los Alamos County Chamber of Commerce Director. “This is yet another great reason to shop local on Small Business Saturday!”
