Tax savings for back to school
Just a reminder. You can make tax-free purchases for back-to-school supplies and clothing between Friday and Sunday in Virginia.
School supplies that cost $20 or less and clothing items that cost $100 or less are exempt from Virginia sales taxes for these three days.
With school starting in Spotsylvania County on Aug. 24, it’s not too early to start gathering supplies for a successful school year. Most county schools have posted a list of supplies students will need on their web sites.
Details on the sales tax holiday are available at www.tax.virginia.gov.
