The second Sunday of August to the following Saturday is designated as Shop
Maryland tax-free Week each year. That means qualifying apparel and footwear
$100 or less, per item, are exempt from the state sales tax. The first $40 of a back-
pack or bookbag purchase is also tax-free. Accessory items, except for backpacks,
are not included. The Maryland tax-free week for 2018 will occur Sunday, August
11
th
, through Saturday, August 17

“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, watch-
bands, handbags, handkerchiefs, umbrellas, scarves, ties,
headbands, and belt buckles.
Items that cost more than $100 will be taxable. Special
clothing or footwear designed primarily for protective use
and not for normal wear, such as football pads, will be
taxable.
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.
For online purchases, an eligible item may qualify for the exemption if the item is
both paid for by the customer and delivered to the customer during the tax-free pe-
riod or the customer orders and pays for the item and the retailer accepts the order
for immediate shipment, even if the item is delivered after the tax-free period ends.
An order is for immediate shipment when the customer does not request delayed
shipment, even if other factors, such as a backlog of orders or unavailable stock,
cause the delay.
When retailers accept coupons as a part of the selling price of a taxable item, the
value of the coupon is excludable from the tax as a cash discount, unless a third
party reimburses the retailer for the amount of the manufacturer’s coupon.
For layaway purchases, if a customer begins a layaway agreement during the Shop
Maryland period any eligible items placed on layaway during that period will qualify
for the exemption. Example: A customer places ten qualifying items (each costing
$100 or less) on layaway during the Shop Maryland period and completes the lay-
away and receives the merchandise after the period ended. The total purchase is
exempt from tax.
