The One and Only VA Sales Tax Holiday

When is Virginia's sales tax holiday?
So this year’s Virginia school supply tax holiday (August 7-9) comes with a bit of a twist:

    “Legislation enacted by the 2015 General Assembly combines Virginia’s three existing sales tax holidays into one three-day holiday beginning the first Friday in August at 12:01 a.m. and ending the following Sunday at 11:59 p.m. This year’s sales tax holiday is August 7-9.

    That means that during the sales tax holiday period, consumers can purchase qualifying school supplies, clothing, footwear, hurricane and emergency preparedness items, and Energy Star and WaterSense products without paying sales tax. This includes qualifying items purchased online, by mail or over the phone.

    In addition to the specific items exempted, retailers may also choose to offer other items “tax-free” by paying the sales tax themselves during the holiday.”

In the past, hurricane preparedness was held in May and Energy Sense in October.

Overview of Exempt Items:

School Supplies, Clothing, and Footwear:
Qualified school supplies – $20 or less per item
Qualified clothing and footwear – $100 or less per item
Detailed list of school supplies, clothing and footwear

Hurricane and Emergency Preparedness Items:
Portable generators – $1,000 or less per item
Gas-powered chainsaws – $350 or less per item
Chainsaw accessories – $60 or less per item
Other specified hurricane preparedness items with a sales price of $60 or less per item
Detailed list of hurricane preparedness items

Energy Star and WaterSense Items:
Qualifying items carrying either the Energy Star or WaterSense label with a sales price of $2,500 or less purchased for noncommercial home or personal use.
Qualifying Energy Star items include dishwashers, clothes washers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, light bulbs, dehumidifiers, and refrigerators
Qualifying WaterSense items include bathroom sink faucets, faucet accessories such as aerators and shower heads, toilets, urinals, and landscape irrigation controllers
