127 Sale a boon for economy, but could cause school delays
Stace Wednesday August 6, 2014

It doesn’t officially kick off until tomorrow, but that hasn’t stopped early birds from hitting up vendors along the World’s Longest Yard sale Route. The 600 plus long stretch of bargains runs straight through the heart of Crossville. While some locals are less enthusiastic about the traffic congestion that the sale can bring, others realize the significant boost it brings to the local economy. Crossville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce President Brad Allamong notes that many of the out of town shoppers shop, eat and sleep in Crossville. Cumberland County Schools are taking notice of the sale’s impact as well. For the first time in 20 years, schools will be in session at the same time the sale is in effect. School officials caution that busses may experience delays due to heavy traffic along Highway 127, and ask drivers to use caution, as children may be present.

 


Sales Tax Charged During Tax-Free Weekend
Dept of Revenue Wednesday August 6, 2014

Tennessee Department of Revenue officials are urging people to give them a call if you think you were wrongly charged sales tax during the tax-free weekend, which was last Friday through Sunday. A woman in Wilson County told officials she was charged sales tax on items that were supposed to be exempt. She bought the items at Target in Mt. Juliet. The Revenue Department has had two reports of retailers incorrectly charging sales tax. Officials say both issues were resolved by talking to the taxpayer. Revenue officials say you should check your receipts and if you think you were incorrectly charged, call the Department of Revenue at 1-800-342-1003. The customer will need to return to the retailer where the items were purchased to get a refund on the sales tax.
