Tax Free Week Starts Today

August 12th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

It's Shop Maryland Tax Free Week, and it runs through Saturday.

Any single qualifying article of clothing or footwear priced at $100 or less is exempt from the state's 6 percent sales tax, regardless of how many items are purchased at the same time. In addition, the first $40 of any backpack or bookbag purchase this week is also tax free.

Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot and the Maryland Retailers Association are promoting a social media contest in which the winners will receive scholarship money.

All you have to do is take a Maryland-themed photo while shopping, write a catchy caption, and then post it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag “shopmdtaxfree.”
