Tax free weekend is here

Aug 5, 2011 12:44:00 AM - thestate.com
It’s ready, set, shop this weekend in the Palmetto State — and Thanksgiving still is more than three months away.

Retailers have sharpened their sales pitches and flung open their doors on the state’s 12th annual Sales Tax Holiday.

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. today, the state dropped its 6 percent sales tax on a laundry list of traditional back-to-school items, from shoes and clothing to bedding and electronics, all aimed at helping prepare students for their return to the classroom this fall.

Sales taxes will remain suspended until midnight Sunday.

Be warned, if you’re just now heading out to the malls and shopping centers in your area, you’re already off the lead lap.
