Some cities are not participating in the sales tax holiday.
South Carolina, however, has continued with the annual weekend since it started in the early 2000s - and now it attracts many shoppers from North Carolina.
The sales tax holiday was created as a way to ease the financial burden of some large yearly purchases, such as back-to-school supplies and clothes. The price of each school computer accessory item must be $250 or less.
It will run from midnight August 3 to 11:59 p.m. It also extends to baby clothing and office materials for both in-person and online purchases made during the qualifying period. This includes a variety of items, from pencils and paper to trousers and jackets to prepare for the fall.
The tax holiday qualifies for personal-use items only.
