Bowling shoes and bridal gowns, get’em tax free

Maryland’s much ballyhooed tax-free shopping week starts Sunday, and with all the coverage leading up to its kickoff, I had assumed it was all about back-to-school shopping.

Then I stumbled across the list of exempt items. You can find it here, on the comptroller’s website. And if you want to full story on the tax free week, check out Alissa Gulin’s piece here.

The tax free stuff includes the following items, as long as they’re under $100:

  • Antique clothing
  • Arm warmers
  • Belts, with or without buckles (buckles sold separately are not exempt)
  • Bowling shirts and shoes (not rented)
  • Bridal gowns, sold or rented
  • Costumes
  • Cowboy boots
  • Dry cleaning services
  • Fishing vests
  • Fur coats
  • Golf clothing
  • Lingerie
  • Tuxedos
