Tax Free Week In Maryland 2018

August 10, 2018

Tax Free Shopping Week Starts Sunday!

Make that list and get ready to shop because Maryland Tax-Free week kicks off this Sunday, August 12th!

Between August 12th and August 18th, qualifying apparel and footwear priced at $100 or less, per item, are exempt from the state sales tax when purchased in Maryland!  In addition, the first $40 of a backpack or book bag purchase is also tax-free.  Accessory items, except for backpacks are not included, according to the Comptroller of Maryland.

This is not just for kids going back to school – it’s for any qualifying item of clothing or shoes – anywhere in the state of Maryland (priced under $100).  You will get a 6% discount off your purchase of qualifying items!  However, if you are planning on doing some back-to-school shopping, this is the perfect time to get some tax relief.

Happy shopping!  By the way, if you are considering buying or selling a home, please call me.  I'll help you find the perfect deal in the housing market as well.
