Families in Virginia will get a sales tax break on clothes and supplies for school when the state holds its annual Virginia tax holiday, August 5-7.

To be eligible for the tax break, school supply items must be priced at $20 or less, and clothing and footwear must be priced at $100 or less.  The tax holiday does not apply to the purchase of computers.

Among the eligible school supplies are art and music supplies, composition books and notebooks, paper, dictionaries, crayons, lunch boxes, pens, pencils, and reference books.
