Virginia is giving shoppers a break on buying back-to-school supplies.

Gov. Bob McDonnell's office said the annual back-to-school sales tax holiday will begin Aug. 2 and run through Aug. 4.

During the holiday, shoppers at retail stores statewide won't have to pay sales tax on notebooks, pens, calculators, binders and other school supplies priced up to $20.

Shoes and most clothing items priced up to $100 also will be exempt from the sales tax.

The Department of Taxation has posted a list of eligible items and guidelines on its website.

Maryland will also hold its tax-free holiday in Aug. From Aug. 11 until Aug. 17, clothing and shoes under $100 are exempt from state sales tax. For more information on Maryland's tax-free week, click here.
