Maryland Sales Tax Holiday correction


An issue has been identified with tax rules for book bags in the Maryland Sales Tax Holiday rates between 8/13/2017 and 8/19/2017. Instead of exempting the first $40.00 of eligible book bags, we are applying a tax rate of 100%. To correct the issue, please download and upload the Tax Rule template linked below
