Teachers expected to spend during tax-free holiday

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Teachers are expected to take out their checkbooks this weekend to take advantage of the tax-free holiday.

A new industry report shows teachers spend hundreds of dollars out of their own pockets every year on school supplies, and every penny saved counts.

A Grand Strand teacher store is getting ready for the big crowds, as school supplies are tax-free between August 2 and August 4.

This is the store's busiest weekend of the year and it's the only weekend of the year they're open on Sunday.

Tune in to WMBF News Today for a live report on how much teachers have to spend on school supplies and how this weekend is helping them prepare for the school year.

Items that are tax free: clothing, shoes, school supplies, book bags, computers, printers, bedspreads and linens.
