Tax Free Tax Holiday Weekend 2016 Georgia South Carolina

No sales tax-free weekend in Georgia for 2018. But just across the bridge, South Carolina will have the annual sales tax holiday weekend Aug. 3 to Aug. 5 this year to help save on your back-to-school. Which will make it worth the trip to hit the Tanger Outlets, Target etc. along US 278 in Bluffton, SC.

South Carolina 2018 Sales Tax Holiday Aug. 3-5 

South Carolina’s Tax Free Weekend applies to the following items:
Clothing, Accessories, Footwear, School supplies, Computers, Computer equipment & software, Linens, bath towels, shower curtains.

Not exempt: Jewelry, cosmetics, eyewear, furniture and layaway purchases.


No Georgia tax-free weekend
