Maryland Holds Tax-Free Shopping Week

Maryland will hold its annual sales tax holiday August 11-17, 2019. During this time, eligible clothing, footwear and accessories are exempt from Maryland’s 6% state sales tax rate.

During the tax-free week, the below items are sales tax exempt with the following conditions:

  • Clothing with the purchase price of $100 or less per item;
  • Footwear with the purchase price of $100 or less per item; and
  • Backpacks with the purchase price of $40 or less per item.

Retailers can issue discounts or coupons to reduce the sales price of an item to $100 or less, which will then qualify it for the exemption.

For more information on Maryland’s Shop Tax-Free Week, as well as a full list of tax-exempt items, visit the Comptroller of Maryland’s website.
