Sales tax free shopping coming this weekend

Wisconsin is joining several other states across the country in taking part in a sales tax holiday this year.

Virginia's annual sales tax holiday is often associated with back-to-school shopping purchases but the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) encourages all Virginians to print, review and use the VDEM sales tax holiday checklist.

The sales tax holiday runs through Sunday, August 5, and all retailers in the state are required to participate. This year the state sales tax rate is 4.45 percent.

People may wait to make large item purchases and increase sales during the tax exempt period, though Wisconsin's holiday limits this significantly.
