It may feel as though summer just started, but it’s already time to begin shopping for back-to-school. Thankfully if you live in an apartment in West Columbia, SC, the upcoming Tax Free Weekend is your chance to save.
Tax Free Weekend is a holiday where no sales tax is tacked onto purchases for eligible items on a state-by-state basis. For a weekend in August South Carolina won’t impose sales tax on select items during the tax-exempt promotion. You can save on many items for like clothing, footwear, computers and school supplies.
The tax-free deals work automatically, with no special coupons or rebates needed. Stores will deduct the sales tax from purchases at the register in participating states. Consumers who live in states that do not offer tax exemptions during the weekend can simply travel to states that do and shop there.
Tax Free Weekend is an annual tradition generally held in August. The holiday in South Carolina is this weekend, Aug. 1-3 for clothing, computers, school supplies and more.
