August 5-7, 2016 marks Virginia's annual sales tax holiday. Consumers may purchase qualifying clothing, footwear, and school supplies, as well as Energy Star and WaterSense products tax-free. The tax-free weekend also applies to hurricane emergency preparedness items. For more information about qualifying products and the tax-free weekend please visit the Virginia Department of Taxation website here.

The beginning of July is an important time for our nation and the Commonwealth. The 4th of July is on the horizon -- this coming week we will see parades, fireworks and the “unofficial” start of summer. Remember our children are out of school, so please drive responsibly in our communities. 

Another major date of note is July 1, the enactment date for most newly passed legislation. During the course of the year, we have tried to highlight the most significant bills that will have a major impact going forward. The Richmond Times-Dispatch also offers a good snapshot of new legislation.
