During the annual Sales Tax Holiday, a variety of purchases are exempt from South Carolina’s 6% sales tax and any applicable local taxes. Tax-free items range from clothing, accessories, and shoes to school supplies, backpacks, and computers. As long as an item is eligible, it is tax-free whether purchased in-store or online.

In past years, South Carolina shoppers have saved between $2 million and $3 million during the holiday weekend.
Items such as jewelry, cosmetics, eyewear, sports equipment, and layaway purchases are not exempt.
