WASHINGTON - People paying high taxes might joke about getting "hosed," but new plumbing will be tax free in some cases in Virginia this weekend.
The tax exemption applies to items costing $2,500 or less and includes everything from toilets and faucets to ceiling fans and refrigerators.
In Northern Virginia the sales tax is 6 percent.
Maryland has a sales tax holiday for Energy Star products coming up in February.
