Tax Free Weekend


NFIB State Director Ben Homeyer says this weekend’s sales tax holiday on clothes, school supplies, and computers should give a boost to South Carolina’s small businesses. The sales tax holiday starts Friday and ends Sunday.
“Hopefully, it will be a big weekend for small businesses,” Homeyer said. “When you combine the savings of the sales-tax holiday with the usual back-to-school sales, you’re going to help people get a bigger bang for their buck.”
NFIB is encouraging people to support local businesses by shopping small this weekend, Homeyer said. “When you shop at small, locally-owned businesses, you’re helping your friends and neighbors,” he said. “You’re supporting the businesses that support our schools and charities and create jobs in our communities.”
