The Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week for 2014 runs Sunday, August 10 through Saturday, August 16. That means qualifying apparel and footwear, $100 or less per item, are exempt from state sales tax. Accessory items are not included.
Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week coincides with back to school shopping, but it's not just for students. The week is a great time for anyone to take advantage of the savings and shop locally for clothing and other qualifying purchases.
