South Carolina’s 2019 sales-tax holiday takes place from Aug. 2 at 12:01 a.m. to Aug. 4 at midnight. During this window, the state sales tax of 6% will be waived on qualifying items.
Compared with other states’ sales tax holidays, South Carolina’s is especially good because the state doesn’t place a dollar limit on items that can be bought tax free.
