South Carolina sales tax holiday

South Carolina’s annual Sales Tax Holiday will be held from Aug. 7 through Aug. 9. During the weekend, shoppers may purchase eligible items online or in a store without paying the state’s 6% sales tax as well as any applicable local taxes.

“In these difficult times, the tax-free weekend is a great way for South Carolina shoppers to save money, and even more it’s a time to support our South Carolina businesses,” said South Carolina Department of Revenue director Hartley Powell.

According to the SC DOR, South Carolina shoppers spent more than $21.7 million on tax-free items during the 2019 Sales Tax Holiday.

Tax-free items include school supplies, clothing and accessories, footwear, computers, printers and some bed and bath items. These items are eligible regardless of price and can be new or used.

Smartphones, digital cameras, jewelry, wallets, watches, furniture, rental clothing or footwear and eyewear are not tax free during the Sales Tax Holiday.
