Sorry, bargain hunters: It appears you’ll have your usual two days to do tax-free shopping this summer. Last month, Gov. Charlie Baker proposed allowing tax-free shopping through all of August and September, touting it as a way to support consumers and businesses still recovering from the pandemic. The idea was met with immediate skepticism in the Legislature, with lawmakers contending the money — the holiday would cost the state an estimated $900 million — would be better put toward more targeted programs.
