Tax Free weekend helps save on back-to-school

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) The money saving three day event that offers parents and back-to-school shoppers more savings is set for the first weekend in August.

South Carolina's Tax Free weekend, slated for August 5 - 7, gives parents the opportunity to hit the isles for back-to-school shopping while bypassing the sales tax.

Items that are usually included in the money saving weekend are:

  • Clothing
  • Accessories
  • Footwear
  • School supplies
  • Computers
  • Computer equipment

Because different shopping locations will offer items at different prices, it is recommended to search for the best price on the items you and your children need.
