As Virginia students prepare to head back to school, the Old Dominion State is giving shoppers a break on sales taxes for certain items. New this year is the combination of tax exclusions for hurricane preparation and water and energy conservation products with school supplies and clothing. Previously, Virginia held three separate tax holidays. See below for 2015 Virginia tax holiday dates, tax-exempt items and notable rules and exceptions. Limits shown reflect cost per item.
