The 2015 Virginia General Assembly enacted legislation that will combine the three tax-free shopping holidays into one. This year’s first Hurricane and Emergency Preparedness Equipment Sales Tax holiday is May 25-31. The next tax-free shopping opportunity will be August 7-9, 2015 for not only Hurricane and Emergency Preparedness Equipment, but also, School Supplies and Clothing as well as Energy Star and WaterSense Qualified Products.
Monday through Sunday, May 31, you won’t have to pay sales tax on items for your hurricane-ready kit.
All Virginia retailers participate in this tax-free holiday. For a full list of items that you can buy tax-free, click here.

Stores across the commonwealth are stocking up with supplies to help people prepare for hurricane season.
At the Lowe's Home Improvement store in Albemarle County they are setting out supplies that qualify.
During this seven-day period, retailers may also choose to pay the sales tax themselves on any nonexempt items and pass the 5 percent savings onto customers.
Virginia also has a sales tax holiday for school supplies and clothing in August, and one for Energy Star and WaterSense products in October. Click here to learn more about Virginia's Hurricane and Emergency Preparedness Equipment Sales Tax Holiday.

People are encouraged to take advantage of the tax break and be ready for potential storms. The first tax-free shopping week will help with preparations for the start of Hurricane Season on June 1st.
