Beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 1 and ending at midnight on Sunday, Aug. 3, you can buy certain school supplies, clothing and footwear without paying Virginia sales tax. Here are some of the conditions that apply:
Each eligible school supply item must be priced at $20 or less.
Each eligible article of clothing and footwear must be priced at $100 or less.
Computers do not qualify as “school supplies.”
The item need not be intended for use in school, nor must the item actually be used in school activities to qualify for the school exemption.
