[ARCHIVED] Weekend sales tax holiday covers school supplies, hurricane season and energy savings

sales tax holiday

Aug. 1, 2016 - Whether you're looking for school supplies, preparing for the current hurricane season or in the market for an energy-saving appliance, this weekend's sales tax holiday is the time to go shopping.

Virginia's General Assembly last year combined the state's three sales tax holidays into one three-day holiday that begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday and ends at 11:59 p.m. Sunday. During these three days, consumers can buy qualifying school supplies, clothing and footwear, hurricane and emergency preparedness items, and Energy Star and WaterSense products without paying sales tax. This includes qualifying items purchased online, by mail or over the phone.

For more information, visit the state's sales tax site online.
