Title Guidelines for Combined Sales Tax Holiday
Document ID Sales and Use
Summary These guidelines are published by the Department of Taxation (“the Department”) to provide guidance to retailers and consumers regarding Virginia’s combined sales tax holiday for hurricane preparedness items, clothing and school supplies, and Energy Star and WaterSense items. Effective July 1, 2015, Senate Bill 1319 (Chapter 382, 2015 Acts of Assembly) combined each of these existing sales tax holidays into one recurring three-day event, which begins at 12:01 a.m. on the first Friday in August of every year and ends at 11:59 p.m. on the Sunday immediately following. Effective July 1, 2017, Senate Bill 1018 and House Bill 1529 (Chapters 446 and 26, 2017 Acts of Assembly) extended the combined sales tax holidays until July 1, 2022. These guidelines and rules are applicable to the combined holiday event taking place in 2018 and subsequent years.
