Today (August 18) is the last day of Maryland’s Tax – Free week, when you can skip the sales tax on many items you’d buy anyway.
Per the Comptroller’s Web site: “[Q]ualifying apparel and footwear $100 or less are exempt from the Maryland 6% sales tax.” These items include
Dresses (under $100 each dress)
Shoes (including flip-flops, wellies and boots — under $100 each pair)
“Aerobics Clothing” and sports uniforms
Bras, Tights and “underclothes”
Also, the City Council proclaimed August 12-18 as “Buy Local and Independent” week. Check out the hot deals you can benefit from by shopping College Park.
