Georgia sales tax holiday this weekend

Just in time for back-to-school shopping, many items on sale this weekend in Georgia will be exempt from sales taxes. From July 30 to 31, most clothing, computer equipment, and school supplies will be tax-exempt. The clothing exemption applies to merchandise under $100 per item including clothes, accessories, diapers and athletic gear; the technology exemption applies to computers and computer components under $1,000; and the school supply exemption applies to products under $20 per item. For details and a fuller listing of non-taxable and taxable items, see the Georgia Department of Revenue’s fact sheet here.

In Decatur and DeKalb County, this holiday means a potential savings of 7 percent on eligible purchases.
