Back by popular demand, South Carolina's annual sales tax holiday weekend will take place Friday, Aug. 4 through Sunday, Aug. 6.

During the annual sales tax holiday, a variety of approved school supply items are exempt from the 6% state sales tax and any applicable local taxes. In years past, shoppers have saved between $2 million and $3 million during the holiday weekend.

Shoppers will pay no sales tax on items ranging from clothing and shoes to book bags and computers. Items such as jewelry, cosmetics, eyewear, furniture, and layaway purchases are not exempt.
