BRISTOL, Va. (WJHL) – Shoppers in Virginia won’t have to worry about sales tax on select items starting Friday.
According to the Virginia Department of Taxation, the three-day sales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday and runs through 11:59 p.m. Sunday.
The sales tax holiday’s goal is to help Virginians purchase school supplies, clothing, footwear, hurricane and emergency preparedness products and Energy Star and WaterSense products.
There are qualifications for each eligible item purchased. For example, in order to avoid paying sales tax on clothing and footwear, the items must cost $100 or less.
Guidelines for the sales tax holiday can be found online as well.
