Shoppers will get a holiday this coming weekend – a holiday from paying sales tax on a wide variety of items.
The annual Sales Tax Holiday will be August 4-6 in South Carolina, according to the S.C. Department of Revenue (DOR). The holiday is in effect from 12:01 a.m. on August 4 until midnight on August 6.
During the annual Sales Tax Holiday, a variety of approved school supply items are exempt from the 6 percent state sales tax and any applicable local taxes. In years past, shoppers have saved between $2 million and $3 million during the holiday weekend.
