SC’s Tax Free Weekend – August 4-6, 2017!
If you’re going to be in South Carolina the weekend of August 4-6, you might want to take advantage of the state’s tax free weekend!
It applies to clothing, shoes, and school supplies and is intended to coincide with parents’ annual back-to-school shopping efforts. Walmart and Target already have their back-to-school displays up, so if there’s extra room in your car, consider stocking up!
Here are some tax-free weekend shopping tips courtesy of The State newspaper:
Know what is and isn’t included in the sales tax exemption. To see a complete list, visit thestate.com.
Make a list and stick to the list. Impulse buying will bust the budget and end up soaking up all the savings on the things you really needed.
Scour the web for online coupons from manufacturers. Some offer discounts, free shipping, free items or other sales incentives.
Shop local, too. Big box stores, outlet malls and traditional malls draw a lot of shoppers, but local stores might offer you better deals.
