If you live in Virginia, or close enough to shop inside its borders, get ready for the Virginia Sales Tax Holiday, from Aug. 4-6, 2017. During that weekend, you can buy qualifying school supplies, clothing, footwear, hurricane and emergency preparedness items, and even Energy Star™ and WaterSense™ products, all without paying the Virginia state sales tax.
The three-day break from Virginia sales tax starts the first Friday in August at 12:01 AM and ends the following Sunday at 11:59 PM. North Carolina repealed their sales tax holidays earlier this year.
Currently, Virginia’s state sales tax is 5.3 percent, so depending on what you need to buy, the savings can add up.
What items are eligible?
School supplies, clothing, and footwear
