ACTION NEEDED: About the West Virginia Sales Tax Holiday July 30-August 2, 2021

Overview

West Virginia will hold its first sales tax holiday, beginning Friday, July 30, 2021 at 12:01am and ending Monday, August 2, 2021 at 11:59, during which sales of certain clothing, school supplies, instructional material, laptop and tablet computers, and sport equipment 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 three tax codes eligible for the sales tax holiday were mistakenly excluded from our release:

  • PC040100 - Clothing And Related Products (Business-To-Customer)-general,
  • PS060103 - School Related Products (B2C)-supplies-Book bags, and
  • PS060122 - School Related Products (B2C)-supplies-Pencils

Resolution

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.
