Bay State Lawmakers are once again considering a sales tax holiday, this time a restaurant-specific tax holiday that would last five days.

According to the State House News Service, Rep. Keiko Orrall of Lakeville, and Claire Cronin of Easton, say it’s a good time to pass the bill. Orrall recommended a stretch of Aug. 11-15.

In past years Massachusetts has offered a tax-free weekend. In 2012 it took place between August 11-12, and excluded tax on items totaling less than $2,500. There isn’t usually clothing tax in Massachusetts, unless it totals more than $175. During the tax free week that was also included under the $2,500 policy.
