Virginia Tax Free Weekend

Virginians can shop tax free this weekend, Friday through Sunday, August 3-5 using our link. During this three-day period, purchases of certain school supplies, clothing and footwear will be exempt from the Virginia sales tax. Each eligible school supply item must be priced at $20 or less, and each eligible article of clothing and footwear must be priced at $100 or less.  For details, visit Virginia Department of Taxation.


Internet Purchases

Items purchased over the Internet will be treated as exempt if 1) the item is both delivered to and paid for by the customer during the exemption period; or 2) the customer orders and pays for the item and the seller accepts the order during the exemption period for immediate shipment, even if delivery is made after the exemption period.
