Nashville, TN - Local tax enthusiast Charles Hammond IV is outraged that Tennessee is offering a Sales Tax Holiday this weekend, and he is not taking it sitting down.
"This so-called Sales Tax Holiday is an abomination and is depriving the Tennessee government of much-needed revenue," said Hammond IV. "We're just hurting ourselves."
This is not Hammond's first protest of the tax break. Earlier this year, Hammond staged a one-hour hunger strike outside the Tennessee General Assembly to convince them not to approve the holiday.
Witnesses say he broke around the 50-minute mark and ate a salad. Hammond denies the allegations.
Hammond says he plans to spend all weekend protesting outside local Nashville retailers, including Walmart, Best Buy, and Kroger. He welcomes other tax lovers to join him.
