During the three-day event, most articles of clothing and footwear priced at $100 or less each, and school or office supplies that cost $20 or less per item, will be exempt from sales tax. There is no limit to the number of tax-free items that can be purchased provided the items meet the tax-holiday qualifications. Some retailers may also choose to absorb the tax on other items during the holiday period, so check with the stores.

A listing of qualifying items, additional information on guidelines and answers to frequently asked questions are available online at www.tax.virginia.gov.

“I hope Virginians will go out and take advantage of this holiday by spending their back-to-school dollars at Virginia retailers,” said Gov. Bob McDonnell. “Not only will this continue to benefit our state’s economy and employers, it will save Virginians some money at the same time.”
