Maryland Tax-Free Week, August 14-20, 2022
Marylanders will save the six percent sales tax on qualifying clothing and footwear priced $100 or less and the first $40 of a backpack or book bag.
A complete list of the exempt and taxable items is available on the Comptroller’s Website at www.marylandtaxes.gov or by calling the Taxpayer Service section at 410-260-7980 in Central Maryland. Marylanders can also call toll-free 1-800-MD TAXES.
Not everything is tax-free. There are exempt items and a list of taxable items. Check out the Maryland Comptroller’s webpage and the frequently asked questions section to determine what items qualify for the tax-free week.
Some tax-free clothing and footwear examples include sweaters, shirts, slacks, jeans, dresses, robes, underwear, belts, shoes, and boots priced at $100 or less. However, protective items not used for daily wear, such as football pads, are not exempt.
