Tax Free Weekend in South Carolina This Weekend

South Carolina is offering a tax free weekend to coincide with parents’ annual back-to-school shopping efforts this weekend.

During the annual Sales Tax Holiday, shoppers will benefit from an exemption of the 6% state sales tax and any applicable local taxes on the purchase of school supplies.

In addition to shoppers saving approximately $2 million to $3 million over the course of the weekend, the Sales Tax Holiday benefits in-state businesses by encouraging taxpayers to do back-to-school shopping in South Carolina.
