Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday Begins


Get ready to gear up. Friday is the first day of the the back-to-school sales tax holiday in Virginia.

Friday through Sunday, purchases of school supplies for $20 or less per item, and purchases of clothing and shoes for $100 or less per item, will be exempt from sales tax.

School supplies cover everything from binders and book bags, sheet music and painting supplies. There's no limit to the number items you can purchase.

There are some items that are not included in that tax exemption such as makeup, briefcases, and some sports equipment.
