Beginning at 12:01am on Friday, August 4th, through 11:59pm on Sunday, August 6th, consumers in Virginia will be able to purchase certain goods tax-free as part of the 2017 Virginia Sales Tax Holiday.
The Commonwealth used to have three separate sales tax holidays each year:
In 2015, the Sales Tax Holidays were combined into one, the first weekend in August. During the combined sales tax holiday period, consumers may purchase certain items in preparation for hurricanes and other emergencies, certain clothing and school supplies and certain Energy Star and WaterSense qualified items exempt of the sales and use tax.
Eligible items include, among others:
School supplies, clothing, and footwear
Hurricane and emergency preparedness products
Energy Star™ and WaterSense™ products
