Beginning Sunday, August 9, Marylanders will be able to take advantage of Shop Maryland Tax-Free Week. Comptroller Peter Franchot says that the week is annually one of his favorites of the year as residents can experience big savings, scholarship opportunities for college and trade school students and business can hopefully see a rise in sales.
As part of the week, the Maryland Retailers Association is offering scholarships to two students attending a Maryland university, college or trade school. The students must explain how they helped a Maryland business keep the lights on during the COVID-19 pandemic. Entries can be submitted via email (email@example.com ) or on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
