Virginia's tax free weekend is this upcoming weekend, Friday, August 7 through Sunday, August 9, 2015. Not sure exactly what's covered? Review this pdf from the Department of Revenue before you head out to the stores.
Have a baby shower coming up? Baby receiving blankets, bibs, rubber pants, and clothing are included in their exempt list, as are diapers (including adult diapers, if you know someone who needs to stock up).
Are you a bride or know one? Bridal gowns and veils that are purchased and not rented are also eligible items. So go ahead and say yes to that dress!
