The second Sunday of August to the following Saturday is designated as Shop Maryland tax-free Week each year. That means qualifying apparel and footwear $100 or less, per item, are exempt from the state sales tax. Accessory items are not included. The Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week for 2015 is Sunday, August 9 – Saturday, August 15.

What items will be eligible for tax-free purchase during Shop Maryland week?

Clothing and footwear are eligible; a few examples of tax-free clothing and footwear items are sweaters, shirts, slacks, jeans, dresses, robes, underwear, belts, shoes, and boots priced at $100 or less. A more detailed list is available on the Comptroller’s Web site and in taxpayer service offices throughout Maryland (see below).
