Save Money – Virginia’s Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday May 25 - 31

It’s smart to get ready for hurricane and flash flooding season, which arrives June 1. And it’s smart to save money. You can do both by shopping for such products as batteries, food storage containers, generators, first aid kits, bottled water, radios and more between May 25 and 31. When you do, you won’t pay sales tax on many useful products that cost up to $60 or on generators costing $1,000 or less. That’s a savings of 5%! 

New for 2014 – gas-powered chainsaws that cost $350 or less and chainsaw accessories that cost $60 or less are tax free. A complete list of exempt items can be found here.
