Save sales tax on clothes, school supplies Aug. 2-4

It’s the end of July, and while there’s still a month before school starts, it’s already time to save money during Virginia’s annual back-to-school sales tax holiday — Friday, Aug. 2 through Sunday, Aug. 4.

This is the weekend to hit the stores for those who want to save sales tax on a wide range of clothing, footwear and school-related items, whether intended for school use or not.
Items exempt from sales tax during the holiday include most articles of clothing and footwear priced at $100 or less each, and school and some office and art supplies that cost $20 or less per item.

There is no limit to the number of items you can purchase without paying the sales tax, provided each item meets the holiday restrictions.

Under Virginia law, most purchases of tangible personal property are subject to both state and local sales and use taxes. The tax rate is generally 5.3 percent of the cost price.

A list of qualifying items, guidelines for the holiday, and answers to frequently asked questions are available on the Virginia Department of Taxation’s website at http://www.tax.virginia.gov/site.cfm?alias=SchoolSuppliesAndClothingHoliday.

Anyone can buy tax-exempt items during the holiday. It is not limited to purchases for students.
During the tax holidays, retailers also have the option to elect to pay the sales tax themselves on any non-qualifying items that they want to offer tax-free to customers.

That can mean that great deals can be found on numerous other items not included on the list for the tax holiday.
