NO

2008 Rhode Island businesses have tried unsuccessfully to get the state to enact its own tax holiday. The most recent attempt was this year, when a legislative attempt to create such a holiday fell victim to the state's budget woes. Some businesses have taken matters into their own hands, offering discounts that counter the Massachusetts break. Source (PROJO)
