Tax-free Holiday Means End of Summer Vacation Is Near
Really, time flies when you’re having fun – especially when you live at Saluda River Club. Can you believe it – it’s almost time again for the start of school on August 18th!
The families at Saluda River Club are invited to celebrate the end of the summer vacation at the community-wide Back to School Pool Bash on August 23 at the Chickawa Outdoor Center. The Kona Ice Truck will be there with some yummy Kona Ice treats for the kids between 4-5PM. A fun end to the summer vacation and a great start to a fabulous new school year.
Tax-free Holiday Weekend
Prior to the start of the new school year, South Carolina’s tax-free holiday will take place during the first weekend in August, from August 1-3, 2014. 2014 marks the sixth tax-free weekend in the state, and during this time, the 6% state sales and use tax, and any applicable local sales and use tax will not be charged on a host of items – perfect for families to stock up in time for the start of the new school year.
This year, shoppers can save on clothing (including baby clothes, bathing suits and scout and school uniforms), footwear – from ballet slippers to cowboy boots, school supplies, computers, and much more. For a complete list of all tax exempt items, please see the list online under the “what’s new” box. In 2013, South Carolina back-to-school shoppers saved approximately $2.1 million. In 2000, taxpayers saved $3.6 million.
