The South Carolina sales tax holiday will be returning this year, starting Friday, Aug. 5. It will last through Sunday, Aug. 7, according to the state Department of Revenue.
“With the increased cost of living, this year’s Sales Tax Holiday is a welcome relief for families. Everyone saves money during a tax-free holiday, particularly on back-to-school essentials,” said SCDOR Director Hartley Powell.
This year’s #SCtaxfree Weekend is set for August 5-7, 2022. The best way to maximize your savings is to start planning NOW!
