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 The District repealed legislation today back in May that allowed for the tax-break week, usually in time for back-to-school shopping.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(Corrected, since I only briefly read the press release today – more of a reminder – and forgot this was repealed back before summertime.)
