Sales tax holiday this weekend in Virginia

Sales tax holiday this weekend in Virginia

Not all "back-to-school" items are included on that list.

The tax exemption applies to parents' back-to-school shopping for their kids, and for teachers stocking their classrooms.

"This weekend is a great opportunity for Ohioans to stock up on supplies for the school year", said McColley in a news release.

While the first day of school might be about a month away, you can get a head start on some of that back to school shopping thanks to the yearly tax-free weekend.

This year, the state of Louisiana did not offer a tax free weekend which created extra shoppers heading down to MS to make their purchases.

What neighboring states still hold tax free holidays? Walmart is pricing many school supplies under $1.

If an item of clothing qualifies for the exemption under the "sales tax holiday", then all adjustment charges associated with that sale are exempt.

To be eligible, any article of clothing purchased can't have a taxable value of more than $100, including footwear, diapers and materials used to make school uniforms.

This is the fourth consecutive year of the tax relief in OH, made possible by House Bill 49. This year's sales tax holiday was established by the state operating budget, House Bill 49.

The restriction includes accessories like mouth guards and gloves, as well as cleated or spiked athletic shoes. Alabama has one to allow consumers to buy emergency preparedness generators and other hurricane supplies and another for pre-school purchases. That holiday is created to help small businesses. The policy is expected to cost the state almost $15 million in lost revenue.

The study also found that OH counties that border other states experienced a 15.48 percent increase in sales tax collection, leading to the conclusion that many out-of-state families traveled to OH to take part in the tax holiday.

"The people of OH deserve to keep more of the money they earn so that they can more easily provide these essentials for their families", said McColley.

You can also get the qualified items online, tax free.
