State Bill Proposal Would Eliminate State Tax on Groceries

An effort to alleviate financial burdens on Tennessee families is moving forward as the state House advanced a bill to eliminate the state’s grocery tax.

Tennessee’s sales tax rate on food currently stands at 4%, with local jurisdictions able to add up to an additional 2.75% in local sales taxes. The proposed legislation prohibits state and local governments from taxing groceries.
