City Paper is not for tourists
The clock is ticking on tax free shopping. Here’s a press release from the District government website:
The District of Columbia will offer its second 2007 Sales Tax Holiday beginning at 12:01 am Friday, November 23 through midnight Sunday, December 2. The Sales Tax holiday grants an exemption from the 5.75 percent sales tax for clothes, shoes, and accessory items. To qualify, each item must cost $100 or less.
FYI: skis, swim fins, roller blades, and roller-skates don’t count as shoes. Drats!
