Maryland Holds Tax-Free Shopping Week August 2018

A sales tax holiday in Maryland goes into effect August 12-18, 2018. During this time, eligible clothing, footwear and accessories are exempt from Maryland’s six percent state sales tax.

During the tax-free week, the following 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;
  • Backpacks or Bookbags with the purchase price of $40 or less per item.

For a full list of tax exempt items, please refer to the list from the Comptroller of Maryland.

It is important to note that retailers can issue discounts or coupons to reduce the sales price of an item to $100 or less, which will then qualify for the exemption.
