McLean, VA   Delegate Comstock issued the following information as a reminder about the upcoming Sales Tax Holiday:

This weekend, August 6 through 8, Virginia will hold a tax-free holiday for back to school shopping. During this tax holiday, certain school supplies, clothing, and footwear will be exempt from the Virginia sales tax.
Since 2006, Virginia has eliminated the sales tax charge on certain school related items for one weekend each year. 
All school supplies selling for $20 or less per item, and articles of clothing, including footwear, selling for $100 or less per item, will be exempt from sales tax.
