VA To Hold Back-To-School Sales Tax Holiday

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia is giving shoppers a break on buying back-to-school supplies.
    
Gov. Bob McDonnell's office said Wednesday that the annual back-to-school sales tax holiday will begin Aug. 2 and run through Aug. 4.
    
During the four-day holiday, shoppers at retail stores statewide won't have to pay sales tax on notebooks, pens, calculators, binders and other school supplies priced up to $20.
    
Shoes and most clothing items priced up to $100 also will be exempt from the sales tax.
    
The Department of Taxation has posted a list of eligible items and guidelines on its website, http://www.tax.virginia.gov.
