Virginia residents can prepare for the upcoming hurricane season and save money at the same time. The Virginia sales-tax holiday on emergency items such as batteries, flashlights, tarps and first-aid kits runs Saturday, May 25 through Friday, May 31.

During the period, emergency items that cost $60 or less will be exempt from the 5% state and local sales tax. Generators that cost $1,000 or less also are exempt. Retailers can choose to exempt other items from sales tax.
