A list of  exempt and taxable items can be viewed on the comptroller's website.

Franchot, local elected officials and retail industry representatives will be at center court in the mall at 10:30 a.m. to provide details, the release reads.

It's Tax Free day all day every day on the internet. And it should stay that way. It can be thought of as a "Green Rebate" and help the planet as you do not use any gas or roads. Internet shopping is healthier for the planet and your purchase is on your porch when you get home.
