Get ready to knock 6 percent off your back-to-school shopping bills come mid-August.
From Sunday, Aug. 12, to Saturday Aug. 18, Marylanders will have the opportunity to shop tax-free on qualifying merchandise. Clothing and footwear priced less than $100 per item will be exempt from Maryland's 6 percent sales tax.
Accessory items—including jewelry, watches, watchbands, handbags, handkerchiefs, umbrellas, scarves, ties, headbands and belt buckles—do not qualify, according to the Comptroller of Maryland.
For a full list of taxable and tax-exempt items for the week of Aug. 12-18, check out our attached PDF.
