Songs and music have an effect on a person, it can touch their soul and change the way they see the world. They make things better on a bad day, inspire focus when you need to concentrate, music pumps up a workout. Music and songs can impact a person so much that they are able to find the silver lining in the grey cloud. A sales tax holiday is a silver lining in the back to school cloud.
A sale tax holiday is the bright spot in shopping, much like a musical number can dress up any movie. Once in a while, in August the governments of Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia grant a sales tax holiday to give customers a break with the purchases of school supplies and sometimes in December with the help of Christmas purchases--a song sweeter than any Christmas carol.
The sale tax holiday will save customers the 6 percent tax while they get their students ready for school with purchases of school supplies, shoes, clothes and accessories. Items have to be eligible for the tax free status, and under 100 dollars. This is a fairly sweet deal and song for those who can take advantage of the sale tax holiday. In Maryland the holiday will be August 9-16, 2015.
The song is shorter for the folks in Virginia, since their holiday is only August 7-9, 2015. The purchases that will be eligible for the savings of five percent sales will be school supplies that are 20 dollars or less per items and clothing and footwear that is one hundred dollars or less.
No, the sales tax holiday isn’t a true song, but it’s a harmonious deal that is a sweet melody to the ears. Taking advantage of the break can really help families that are struggling to outfits several kids at a time for school. Letting the families purchases school supplies, clothing will help save money on their bills. Saving money might just be the best song of all.
