Tax-free weekend in two weeks!
A tax-free weekend will soon greet consumers buying back-to-school supplies, clothes, household items and computers. South Carolina’s 14th annual Sales Tax Holiday begins at 12:01 a-m Friday, August 2 and finishes at midnight Sunday, August 4. According to an announcement by the Oconee School District, the county’s classroom teachers will receive a $275 check for classroom supplies on the first day they return to work—Tuesday, August 13. Teachers may use receipts from any classroom supply purchases made during the tax-free weekend to reconcile with the $275 they receive.
