Definitions for the Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week
“Clothing or footwear” means an article of apparel designed to be worn on or about the human
body. “Accessory items” include but are not limited to jewelry, watches, watchbands, handbags,
handkerchiefs, umbrellas, scarves, ties, headbands, and belt buckles.
The sales and use tax is not due on the sale of a qualifying article of clothing or footwear if:
*The sales price of the article is $100 or less; and
*The sale takes place during a period beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, August 12, 2012 and ending at 12 midnight on Saturday, August 18, 2012.
The exemption applies to each qualifying item selling for $100 or less, regardless of how many items are sold at the same time. For example, if a customer purchases two shirts for $80 each, both items qualify for the exemption, even though the customer’s total purchase price ($160) exceeds $100. Read More >>
