Back-to-school tax holiday this weekend

School doesn’t start until Sept. 2, but if you want to take advantage of Virginia’s back-to-school tax holiday, you’ve got to start shopping this weekend.

Shoppers won’t be charged sales tax for eligible clothing and school supplies purchased on Friday, Aug. 1, through Sunday, Aug. 3. To qualify for the tax break, articles of clothing and footwear must be priced at $100 or less and school supply items must be $20 or less.

Examples of school supply items that qualify for the tax break include art and music supplies, reference books, lunch boxes, notebooks, and calculators. Eligible clothing includes uniforms, gym clothes, lab coats, and coveralls but not sporting equipment.
