Spring Valley High School student Macie Lockhart receives help from Nikya Jefferson while shopping for shoes at Journeys during the final day of West Virginia’s back-to-school sales tax holiday on Aug. 2, 2021, at the Huntington Mall in Barboursville.

Back-to-school shopping is just around the corner, and West Virginia’s tax-free weekend is returning to provide relief to local families. The official West Virginia state sales tax holiday for statewide purchases will begin at midnight Friday, Aug. 5, and will end at 11:59 p.m. Monday, Aug. 8.

The holiday begins on the Friday before the first Sunday in August and ends the following Monday, although last year was the first time since 2004 the holiday was in effect.
