Tax-Free Weekend Is Upon Us!

Get clothes, shoes, and school supplies this weekend without forking over the sales tax.

Attention back-to-school shoppers and anyone looking to freshen up fall wardrobes: Virginia and Maryland are cutting you a break this weekend with sales-tax-free shopping days.

Friday through Sunday in Virginia, school supplies that are $20 and under and clothing and shoes that are $100 and under are exempt from the state’s 5 percent sales tax. The Leesburg outlets are extending store hours until 10 PM on Friday and Saturday and 9 PM on Sunday for the occasion. Maryland’s tax-free holiday begins Sunday, but runs a bit longer—shoppers can avoid the 6 percent sales tax on similar items through the 14th.

Happy shopping!
