Wondering when the summertime DC ‘sales-tax free’ week is?

Don’t bother. The District repealed legislation today back in May that allowed for the tax-break week, usually in time for back-to-school shopping. A victim of the economy, the city will save nearly $650,000 in revenue.

No word on if it will return.

(Corrected, since I only briefly read the press release today – more of a reminder – and forgot this was repealed back before summertime.)

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
