2017 South Carolina Tax-Free Weekend Set For August 4-6
11 Jul 2017 | By: Courtney Martin
As the traditional Summer season dwindles down over the next month, there's still plenty of time to fit in a Myrtle Beach trip before school starts back. Make the most of your late Summer beach escape from August 4-6, when you book your stay over South Carolina's Annual Tax-Free Weekend, where you will find great deals and save an additional 6% on qualifying purchases.
Myrtle Beach and the surrounding areas of the Grand Strand have been known as shopping hotspots for decades. With several malls (Coastal Grande, Myrtle Beach Mall), outlet malls (Tanger Outlets, Market Common), and stand-alone and boutique stores, you are sure to find everything you're looking for when it comes to back to school savings!
Items that qualify as sales tax exempt during the weekend of August 4-6 include clothing, accessories, footwear, school supplies (such as backpacks), computers, and computer equipment (like printers). In recent years, shoppers have saved upwards of $2 million dollars on their purchases. Be aware that items like jewelry, cosmetics, eyewear, and furniture are not included in the sales tax holiday.
Get your back-to-school list ready, and bring the family out for an early August beach getaway, where you can make tons of memories in Myrtle Beach, as well as save BIG on a range of tax-free items.
