Georgia’s sales tax holiday is back just in time, as school bells begin to ring on Aug. 4. This year’s tax holiday is Friday, Aug. 1, and Saturday, Aug. 2.
Here are items that are exempt:
- Clothing and footwear with a sales price of $100 or less per item;
- Computers, computer components, and prewritten computer software purchased for noncommercial home or personal use with a sales price of $1,000 or less per item; and
- School supplies, school art supplies, school computer supplies, and school instructional materials purchased for noncommercial use with a sales price of $20.00 or less per item.
However, sales tax will still be collected on items such as watches, cell phones, televisions, copy machines, digital cameras and computer bags and cases for electronic devices.
