Tax holiday in Mass. this weekend


BOSTON — Gov. Charlie Baker has signed into law an economic developmen­t bill authorizin­g the two-day sales tax holiday that is planned for this weekend.

The state’s 6.25 percent sales tax will be excluded Saturday and Sunday on most items sold in retail stores.

The Republican governor had earlier provided assurances he would approve the tax-free weekend but waited until Friday to sign the bill while he reviewed other portions of the more than $1 billion economic developmen­t legislatio­n.
