ACTION NEEDED: About the Virginia Sales Tax Holiday August 6-August 8, 2021


Virginia will hold its annual sales tax holiday, beginning Friday, August 6, 2021 at 12:01am and ending Sunday, August 8, 2021 at 11:59, during which sales of certain clothing, school supplies, hurricane and emergency preparedness products, and “Energy Star” products are exempt from state sales tax.

At the time of maintenance release deadlines, sales tax holiday rules were deployed into AvaTax production. These are listed on the Sales Tax Holiday section of Avalara AvaTax Update Maintenance Updates.

It was recently discovered that the following two tax codes eligible for the sales tax holiday were mistakenly excluded from our release:

  • PO200108 - Outdoor gear and supplies / Camping lantern, and
  • PO200109 - Outdoor gear and supplies / Flashlight




As the above rules cannot be normally deployed, import of the attached custom rules template to your account is required if you wish to fully support the sales tax holiday exemptions.
