Ready, Set, Shop! Maryland Tax-Free Shopping Starts Sunday

Check out which items on which you can save 6 percent during Maryland's tax-free shopping week.

You may want to wait a couple more days to buy that new pair of jeans or go back-to-school shopping.

Sunday, Aug. 12 through Saturday, Aug. 18, you’ll be able to save 6 percent on some clothing and footwear items during Maryland’s tax-free shopping week. 

Items that will be exempt from the 6 percent sales tax include clothing and footwear priced less than $100.

Accessories, ranging from bowties and bracelets to purses and watches, are not exempt, according to the comptroller of Maryland.

School starts on Aug. 20 for Prince George’s County and Aug. 27 for Montgomery County students, so next week is the perfect time to do all your back-to-school shopping.
