Tax-free shopping

What can you buy that is tax-free during South Carolina’s back to school tax holiday?

Popular back-to-school items, such as backpacks, binders and filler paper, all qualify. Most clothes and shoes also will be tax-free during the period, which runs Friday through Sunday at stores throughout the state. Some electronics, such as laptops, and dorm room supplies, such as bedding and shower curtains, also qualify for the savings. However, the S.C. Legislature-approved list also includes some unusual items, such as wedding dresses, lingerie and baby bonnets.
