Tax Break for the Shoppers
For all the bargain-hunters out there, the District is offering its sales tax holiday timed with the post-Thanksgiving rush. Starting today through Dec. 7, the District will offer shoppers an exemption from the usual 5.75 percent sales tax for clothing, shoes and accessory items costing $100 or less.
The exemption applies to each item, regardless of how many items are purchased on the same bill.
The tax holidays are part of the legacy of outgoing D.C. Council member Carol Schwartz (R-At Large). The other tax-free holiday traditionally is timed with the start of school.
