Parents can expect a break on buying necessary school supplies the weekend before school starts this year with the annual Georgia sales-tax holiday.
The back-to-school event offers the chance to purchase various items without paying a sales tax free in preparation for children’s return to school.
The holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday and extends through midnight on Saturday.
During those days, buyers won’t have to pay sales tax on several back-to-school items. Exempt items are:
• Clothing and footwear with a sales price of $100 or less per item
