Sales tax holiday coming in May

The Virginia Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday is scheduled for May 25-31. The week allows Virginians to purchase certain preparedness supplies such as batteries, radios, bottled water, first aid kits and generators tax free.

To help promote the week, Ready Virginia developed a kit for partners, which includes web banners, fliers, newsletter articles, public service announcements and more.
