The 2023 Sales Tax Holiday has ended. Check back here next summer to prepare for SC Sales Tax Free Weekend in 2024!
2023 Tax Free Weekend
During the annual Tax Free Weekend (also known as the Sales Tax Holiday), a variety of purchases are exempt from the state'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.
Remember that eligible items are still tax-free if you shop online!
- Check with your local retailer to see if they offer online shopping, delivery, or curbside pick-up.
