Don’t want to pay sales tax?
This weekend was made for you.
South Carolina’s 2017 sales tax holiday is Friday-Sunday.
The 6 percent sales tax normally charged will be waived for select items during the weekend.
Never miss a local story.
According to the South Carolina Department of Revenue, shoppers have saved between $2 million and $3 million in past years.
But not everything is tax-free.
Clothing items such as bras, shoes, sports uniforms, skates and underwear will be tax-free. So will back-to-school items like book bags, calculators, pens, notebooks and computers.
Items such as jewelry, cosmetics and watches will not be tax-free.
