Virginia is August 3-5th (this weekend) and covers qualifying school supplies, clothing, footwear, hurricane and emergency preparedness items and Energy Star and WaterSense products without paying tax. There are more than 150 items that qualify. 

Maryland is August 12-18th and covers clothing and footwear priced at $100 or less and on the first $40 of a backpack purchase. Also, Maryland college students can win a $2,500 scholarship from the Maryland Retailers Association by entering their social media contest. You have to follow or “Like” Shop Maryland Tax-Free on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
Washington DC residents can travel to Maryland and Virginia as their tax free day was repealed in 2010.
