Tax-Free Shopping Begins In Maryland

Play associated audio

The second Sunday of August through the following Saturday is designated as Shop Maryland Week each year, which means qualifying apparel and footwear $100 or less are exempt from the state's 6 percent sales tax.

The sales tax holiday is meant to encourage families to do their back-to-school shopping at Maryland stores. In past years, Maryland retailers have reported a 10 percent jump in sales during the tax holiday.

Virginia recently held their own tax-free weekend to give back-to-school shoppers an incentive to stock up on supplies.

Maryland has also announced a tax-free three-day weekend for certain Energy Star appliances next February.
